Felicity Huffman returns to TV in FOX pilot 'Boomerang'

felicity-huffman-tca-gi.jpgEmmy-winning "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman is set to return to TV in an even more twisted family drama, "Boomerang."

The pilot for FOX follows a family who work as U.S. government assassins. Executive producers include John Wells ("ER," "The West Wing"). Davey Holmes ("Awake") wrote the script and Craig Brewer (2011's "Footloose") will direct.

TVLine reports Huffman will play Margie Hamilton, "a briskly professional assassin who can kill and dispose of a suspected terrorist in the afternoon -- then switch to wife and mother mode without a hitch." Sounds like a logical progression from Lynette Scavo to us.

It'll be interesting to see how FOX rounds out the rest of the killer family.
