As reported last week, co-creator Steven Bochco is working on an L.A. Law TV show reboot at FOX. David E. Kelley, who was hired as a writer and story editor in the original series’ first season and eventually became an executive producer and showrunner, is enthusiastic about the revival.
“I think it’s a great idea and I’m told Billy Finkelstein is coming back to write it and take charge of it. He’s a brilliant writer, so I’ll be watching,” Kelly told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s not something I would want to go back and do again myself because I felt I’ve done it, but I think it’s actually a good idea. It was a great show in its time. I don’t think they will endeavor to just repeat what they did before. I think they will try to make it more current.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of the original L.A. Law TV series? If the reboot is ordered to series, will you watch it?
