Kristin Chenoweth will play a cheerful but psychotic law practicer in David E. Kelley's new project for NBC.

The chance for "Pushing Daisies" to get a revival is getting slimmer as its star, Kristin Chenoweth, has been hired for a new TV series created by David E. Kelley. The man who is also known as the creator of "Ally McBeal", is gearing up NBC's new project, "Legally Mad", by casting Chenoweth as one of the characters.

"I've wanted to work with her for a long time and can't wait to reveal her as someone who's completely mad," Kelley said. Chenoweth will take the role as Skippy Pylon, an apparently cheerful and brilliant attorney who still has psychotic sides in her. She is often mistaken as a teenager, but enjoys the compliment.

No premiere schedule for "Legally Mad" has been thrown out, but the theme of the show is revealed as a quirky law practice set in Chicago.

Meanwhile, the fate of "Pushing Daisies" is put on balance. The show garnered a critical acclaim in the first season but the following has faced a rough ratings and reports were swirling that ABC have decided to wrap the second second for 13 episodes only. The last scheduled episode of the show was December 17.
