Producer

A onetime lawyer, Kelley created a plethora of classic series with legal backdrops, including “The Practice,” “Ally McBeal,” “Boston Legal” and “Goliath,” which recently debuted its third season on Amazon. But lately the 11-time Emmy winner has been in the spotlight with HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” exploring the dark secrets of a group of upper-middle-class mothers. He’s also gone dark with a pair of Stephen King adaptations — “Mr. Mercedes,” currently in its third season on Audience Network, and Spyglass Media Group’s recently announced limited-series take on the genre-defining author’s new novel “The Institute.” Other projects in the works include the HBO miniseries “The Undoing,” starring Nicole Kidman, and a series adaptation of the Michael Connelly novel “The Lincoln Lawyer” for CBS.
