Bring out the dancing baby: it’s time to celebrate the return to television of Calista Flockhart (pictured at right, with Portia De Rossi and Greg Germann), as well as some of her fellow former Boston attorneys from David E. Kelley Land.

Variety reports that the former Ally McBeal has signed on to star in ABC’s drama pilot Brothers and Sisters, about sibs who run a family business after their dad dies. Her sister: none other than Six Feet Under‘s Rachel Griffiths.

Zap2It reports that ABC has also found pilot roles for Flockhart’s Ally costar Germann and former Practice star Kelli Williams. Germann and X2‘s Kelly Hu will be among the stars of In Case of Emergency, a comedy about several high school pals who reunite in their 30s. Williams will get to keep using her legal skills in the drama Women in Law.

Which of these pilots sounds to you like a series ABC should pick up for the fall schedule?
