Kelley (“Big Little Lies, “Nine Perfect Strangers”), who will serve as showrunner and executive producer alongside executive producers Dustin Thomason (“Castle Rock”), J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot’s Ben Stephenson.

Inspired by Scott Turow’s beloved courtroom thriller, “Presumed Innocent” is the story of a horrific murder that upends the Chicago Prosecuting Attorneys’ office when one of its own is suspected of the crime.

In addition to writing, Kelley executive produces through David E. Kelley Productions alongside Matthew Tinker. Dustin Thomason also serves as executive producer. Scott Turow and Bad Robot’s Rachel Rusch Rich will serve as co-executive producers.
