     August 30, 2012

It’s been thirty years since Robin Williams starred in a television series (Mork & Mindy), but the veteran comedian is looking to make his way back to the small screen.  It looks like his comedy vehicle will be a single-camera comedy series written by none other than David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, The Practice).  CBS is currently eying the series which sets Williams up as a brilliant ad executive who ends up working alongside his daughter.  The half-hour episodic comedy would reunite Kelley with CBS, where his drama Picket Fences picked up his first Emmy.  Deadline further reports that Williams has recently wrapped shooting on Lee Daniels’ The Butler and is moving onto The Angriest Man in Brooklyn which also stars Peter Dinklage, Mila Kunis, Melissa Leo and James Earl Jones.
