LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Neve Campbell is returning to series television with a co-starring role on NBC's midseason drama "The Philanthropist."

The "Philanthropist" centers on Teddy Rist (James Purefoy), a renegade billionaire who uses his wealth, connections and power to help people in need around the world.

"Party of Five" alumna Campbell will play the wife of his business partner and lifelong friend, Phillip (Jesse Martin), who runs the two billionaires' charitable foundation and has strong chemistry with Teddy.
