NBC May Get New Legal Dramedy Modeled After THE OFFICE

If you like THE OFFICE on NBC, then you might like a new dramedy pilot that producer David E. Kelley is working on. KINDREDS is much like THE OFFICE in many ways, but featuring a team of misfit lawyers operating from a storefront office. If NBC likes the pilot enough, then you might be seeing KINDREDS next season on the "Peacock" network.

Kathy Bates stars as a nasty-spirited former patent attorney, and law firm head, with Brittany Snow and other actors cast as younger lawyers at the firm. Kathy Bates is a fine actress, and David E. Kelley is a fine producer, so this new pilot has some major hope of becoming a real NBC series. Chances look good for this new show.
