First of all, I love that David E. Kelley isn’t even pretending that his new NBC legal drama, Legally Mad, will have sane characters. Secondly, I love Variety‘s description of the role Pushing Daisies‘ Kristin Chenoweth has just been cast in: “Skippy Pylon, a cheerful and brilliant attorney who nonetheless exhibits flashes of psychosis — and enjoys being mistaken for a teenager.” Skippy takes a job at her father’s Chicago law firm. Perhaps there’s an opening (or at least a guest spot) for someone whose last employer was Chang Poole & Schmidt?

Are you in, or are you out?
