"I do think because of the gender politics that were so part and parcel of Ally McBeal, it's become very relevant and ripe," Kelley tells The Hollywood Reporter of his Emmy-winning Fox series. "So, I'd be open to the idea of Ally McBeal being done again, but I don't think it should be done by me. If it were going to be done, it really should be done by a woman. If it's going to be new, it should be new and different. And I did it: 100 hours." As for returning to Big Little Lies for a second season, Kelly says author Liane Moriarty had a "genius" idea to introduce the character played by Streep. "It's a delicious character and I felt bringing her in was both liberating and daunting," he says. "Daunting because she sets a high bar and you have to measure up, but liberating in that now the show's not going to be compared to last year. There was freedom in that."
