Calista Flockhart approached for Ally McBeal revival

Cue the dancing baby!

Calista Flockhart is said to be in talks for an “Ally McBeal” revival with Fox and original series creator David E.Kelley – who is involved, but not in a writing capacity. A “female auteur” would like take the showrunner reins, as Kelley hinted previously.

“I’d be open to the idea of Ally McBeal being done again, but I don’t think it should be done by me. If it were going to be done, it really should be done by a woman,” he told The Hollywood Reporter in 2018. “If it’s going to be new, it should be new and different. And I did it: 100 hours.”

Deadline says the idea of bringing back the pop culture phenomenon of the late ’90s has been “bouncing around” for a while now.

The cast of the series also included Courtney Thorne-Smith, Greg Germann, Lisa Nicole Carson, Jane Krakowski, Peter MacNicol, Gil Bellows, Portia de Rossi, Lucy Liu, Robert Downey Jr, and Jesse L. Martin.

Deadline suggests that Hulu might make for a logical destination for the series considering it falls under the same Disney umbrella as the production studio, Fox TV. All five seasons of the show are also available on Hulu.
