With the maturation of the streaming space, Kelley may finally have enough outlets to accommodate his voluminous output. In 2021, the prolific writer/producer has had shows drop on ABC (“Big Sky”), HBO (“The Undoing”), Amazon (“Goliath’s” final season), Hulu (“Nine Perfect Strangers”) and Disney+ (“Big Shot”), which is also home to “Doogie Kameāloha, M.D.,” a reboot of “Doogie Howser, M.D.” In May 2020, CBS pulled the plug on his “Lincoln Lawyer” series based on the novels by Michael Connelly, but Netflix eventually picked it up to start filming in March 2021, with Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in the lead. Kelley also created Netflix’s upcoming six-part anthology series “Anatomy of a Scandal,” based on Sarah Vaughan’s bestselling novel, and HBO Max’s upcoming limited series “Love and Death,” starring Nicole Kidman.
