Demi Moore Is Giving TV a Shot as a Mom of an Abducted Child

Demi Moore hasn't had a big role on the small screen since her stint on General Hospital back in 1981-1984.

Now Moore, who's been relatively quiet since a series of personal setbacks—including her divorce to Ashton Kutcher—is back, joining the ranks of A-listers on TV with a new drama, 10 Days in the Valley, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

From Tasssie Cameron, the creator of Rookie Blue10 Days has Moore playing Jane Sadler, a worn-out writer and single mom in the middle of a messy separation. When her 5-year-old is abducted in the dead of night, Jane suddenly has to risk everything, including her career and her secrets, to get her child back.

Cameron serves as writer, executive producer, and showrunner on the project, which is currently being shopped to networks. Moore was last on TV in 2003 as a guest star on Will & Grace.

Welcome back Demi!

Sounds intriguing, but I'm kind of sick of the "former 50+ A-list star who wants to resurrect their dead career, by unbelievably being a parent to a young child" cliche! Here's looking at you Harrison Ford/Tom Hanks:-/ A hard PASS for me on this one as it stands.

Cool. I welcome every actor who wants to come to the series format. Even those who might not be as big of a star anymore in the movie world. The series format will gladly take all Hollywoods "has beens".. most of them are still talented and will be a good addition to a lot of series out there.

Just sounds like a rehash of the Missing with Ashley Judd.

Her role in A Few Good Men helped boost her career.

So she was an A lister in what the early 90s? What was her last good movie?

The critically acclaimed Margin Call (2011). Film about the onset of the economic crisis. You might be quenched by the subject matter but it's really good if you give it a chance. Kevin Spacey is also in it. It has a 88% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
You guys are so harsh. She deserves a little respect.

Not harsh, just wondering what actually constitutes an A lister.

They should have said "former" A-Lister. She used to be a huge box office draw between 20 and 30 years ago. She's a talented actress at any rate.

Wow. This should be interesting. And I loved Rookie Blue, so I'm looking forward to hearing how this show does
