Josh Schwartz is venturing into David E. Kelley territory, trying to Gossip Girl-up the lawyer genre with a new project he just sold in a bidding war to ABC (which seems determined to find its own brand of courtroom show, even though it didn’t happen with the late, great Eli Stone). It’s about a commitmentphobic female divorce lawyer, which does sound right up ABC’s Television for Women alley — a sort-of Ally McBeal for the Grey’s Anatomy set (i.e. Ally minus dancing baby-inducing biological clock). It’s being written by Chuck writer Ali Adler, which also bodes well. (Extra points to Schwartz, by the way, for nurturing much-needed female TV writing talent, including GG‘s Stephanie Savage as well.) And I’m all for leading ladies whose major life goal is not to find a man.

What do you think, PopWatchers? Does TV need a new Ally McBeal? Are you psyched to see Josh Schwartz continue to expand his TV domain?
