Kristin Chenoweth will star in Legally Mad, a new drama for NBC. TV legend David E. Kelley, the man behind legally-themed series like Ally McBeal and The Practice, in addition to being the husband of
Michelle Pfieffer, will produce the series under his overall production deal with Warner Bros.
The series will follow a woman named Brady Hamm, a twentysomething who works at her father's law firm. The lead of Hamm will be played by English actress Charity Wakefield. Chenoweth, who recently guest-starred on the cancelled ABC series Pushing Daisies and notched an Emmy nomination for her efforts, will play legal eagle Skippy Pylon, a smart yet cheerful lawyer who is prone to episodes of psychosis and is often mistaken for a teenager because of her looks and demeanor. Jon Seda will play Joe Matty, a grumpy but lovable character.
