He's already got Ally McBeal, The Practice, and Boston Legal under his belt, and now David E. Kelley plans to deliver yet another legal dramedy — this time to NBC.
The network just landed Kelley's latest pilot, a venture we first heard about last week. Details are still scarce, but we know the basics now: the show, like most of Kelley's, is a drama with a comedic bent, and it will focus on a father and daughter who are both lawyers.
While I can occasionally be caught rolling my eyes and complaining about "yet another legal show," network TV actually doesn't have too many of them these days; in fact, once Boston Legal is gone after this season, Eli Stone could be the only one standing. I suppose Kelley is a pretty good place to turn for a possible legal series revival, and until I hear otherwise, I'm choosing to think of this as "Ally and her dad start a law firm."
Do you have any interest in watching another legal show from Kelley — or another show from Kelley, period?
