David E. Kelley (born David Edward Kelley April 4, 1956) is an American television writer and producer, known as the creator of Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, The Practice, Ally McBeal, Boston Public, Boston Legal, and Harry's Law as well as several films. Kelley is one of very few screenwriters to have had a show created by him run on all four of the top commercial U.S. television networks (ABC, CBS, Fox & NBC).

Personal lifeEdit

Kelley married actress Michelle Pfeiffer in November 1993. They have two children: a daughter, Claudia Rose (born February 1993), and a son, John Henry (born August 1994).[1] Although he is sometimes assumed to be a Catholic because his programs address Catholic issues, Kelley was raised a Protestant.[2]
