Fox drama ‘Ally’ adds Thorne-Smith

“Melrose Place” star Courtney Thorne-Smith is joining the cast of David E. Kelley’s new Fox drama “Ally McBeal,” which is set to air Mondays after “Melrose” this fall, sources say.

Smith, who ankled “Melrose Place” at the end of the season, will play the wife of the young lawyer played by Gil Bellows on the show. Thorne-Smith had been with “Melrose” since the start of the Aaron Spelling soap in July 1992, playing Alison Parker.

“She’s a big addition,” said a source at David E. Kelley Prods., who confirmed the deal. “It’s very good for us, for her and for the show.”
