NBC Lands David E. Kelley's Newest Legal Show

NBC Lands David E. Kelley's Newest Legal Show

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?

well i think that it really depends on how he does it ya know ? i loved ally and i think that it was something new for the time, but if this show is kind of just like what we've seen in other industries (i.e. not necessary law) then i dont know if it'll be successful.

I'm so tired of David E. Kelley. He's proven that he's unable to keep a show interesting for more than a couple seasons at a time. I'm also tired of NBC. Since Ben Silverman took over for Kevin Reilly as NBC's head honcho, NBC has taken a freefall bringing to series the Knight Rider remake, the awful Kath & Kim remake, My Own Worst Enemy (which judging by the premier ratings, totally flopped. We'll know for sure next week), and the second and current season of Heroes which has just become totally ridiculous and unwatchable. Meanwhile, Kevin Reilly over at Fox has made the network watchable to the precious few of us who don't care to watch American Idol, nabbing JJ Abrams' Fringe and Joss Whedon's Dollhouse. It's cute NBC, and David E. Kelly will be sinking into obscurity together.
