Nbc Gives New David E. Kelley Legal Drama Series Commitment

Recommended Posts

NBC has given a series commitment to a new legal drama from vet scribe David E. Kelley.


Project reps the first to come out of Kelley since he moved his production company to Warner Bros. TV in a new pact earlier this year.

New drama also becomes the first scripted series from Kelley on the Peacock since he exec produced Steven Bochco's "L.A. Law." Kelley was behind the short-lived NBC reality show "The Law Firm," but most of his recent hits - "Boston Legal," "The Practice," "Ally McBeal," "Boston Public" - have aired either on ABC or Fox.

Kelley also had a string of success at CBS in the mid-1990s, with "Chicago Hope" and "Picket Fences."

The Kelley drama reps one of the bigger commitments to come out of the networks so far this development season - and comes as NBC looks to replenish its stable of hour-long series next season (as "ER" retires and "Law & Order" shows its age).

According to Television Week, which first reported the NBC sale Wednesday morning, the Kelley project revolves around a father and daughter who are both lawyers.
