Kristin Chenoweth Goes Legally Mad


Kristin Chenoweth has been tapped to star in NBC’s David E. Kelley legal drama, reports Variety.

In “Legally Mad,” which takes place at a Chicago law practice, Chenoweth is set to play Skippy Pylon, a cheerful and brilliant attorney who nonetheless exhibits flashes of psychosis — and enjoys being mistaken for a teenager.

“I’ve wanted to work with her for a long time and can’t wait to reveal her as someone who’s completely mad,” Kelley said.

It’s also a quick return to primetime for Chenoweth, who until recently starred in ABC’s critically acclaimed but short-lived “Pushing Daisies.”
