E.
Kelley

Producer

Kelley has spent much of his career reinventing the wheel, focusing his TV-creating efforts on quirky legal dramas. But lately he has embraced the short-form storytelling that cable and OTT providers offer, pushing boundaries with Amazon’s “Goliath” and the TV iteration of Stephen King’s “Mr. Mercedes” on Audience. He’s exploring what it means to be a woman today with HBO’s awards-heavy “Big Little Lies” and announced a second season that brings Meryl Streep into the starry fold in a rare small-screen role. And as if achieving a character-driven series trifecta this year isn’t enough, Kelley ups the ante with the announcement of HBO’s limited series “The Undoing,” which reunites him and “Big Little” lead Nicole Kidman as producing partners.
