A Man In Full: Everything We Know So Far About David E. Kelley And Regina King's Netflix Series

If prestige TV has taught us anything, it's that rich people problems are all the rage. Coming off of multiple TV series that prove this point, David E.

Why Has the Second Coming of David E. Kelley Been Such a Quiet One?

This week, Netflix unveils a new drama series from one of the most successful TV creators of all time—its second, in fact, inside of a month. But where the streaming giant courted headlines with its nine-figure deals with Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes, the addition of David E. Kelley to its stable of showrunners has been a much more low-key affair. In part, that’s because Kelley’s shows, Anatomy of a Scandal and the brand-new The Lincoln Lawyer, have arrived piecemeal instead of as part of any master plan—the latter, in fact, is essentially a network castoff, originally intended for CBS until the pandemic derailed production. But considering that Netflix also has a third Kelley show on the way, an adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s A Man in Full with Regina King attached to direct, the lack of fanfare is a little bit of a puzzle. Kelley, the creator of The Practice, Ally McBeal, Picket Fences, Boston Public, and Chicago Hope, among others, was a star showrunner in an era where few people paid attention to who made their favorite shows, and his recent track record, which includes Big Little Lies and The Undoing, is a strong one as well. So why has the second coming of David E. Kelley been such a quiet one?
