Kristin Chenoweth to Star In New David E. Kelley Legal Drama

Kristin Chenoweth is just so cute, we can’t imagine her getting serious for a role in a legal drama! But David E. Kelley loves her, and picked her as the star of his upcoming drama Legally Mad, a new series for NBC. But when we heard about the plot of the show, we also couldn’t agree more with David’s selection of Kristin.

The show is about a woman named Skippy Pylon who takes a job at her father’s Chicago law firm. She’s really smart, but a little quirky and off-beat, and gets confused for a teenager a lot of the time.

Kelley says of casting Kristin, "I've wanted to work with her for a long time and can't wait to reveal her as someone who's completely mad."

This is perfect timing for Kristen, whose show Pushing Daisies just got canceled. We cant wait to see the show! David E. Kelley shows are always guaranteed to be good.
