Some good news this January.

Some good news this January.

On January 17th, Kathy Bates takes on the leading role in David E. Kelley's new TV show Harry's Law. She plays a long time patent lawyer who gets fired and remakes her life.

Preview looks totally cool. It is of interest to note that Kelley wrote the show with a man in mind but couldn't find the right actor. When he switched the gender, Kathy Bates was the first choice. I am going to bet the show will be more interesting because it was written with a man in mind. I wish that wasn't the case but that's what usually happen.

I'm just surprised that this is not getting more press. Kathy Bates starring on TV should be big news.

Fire up the TIVO. NBC. January 17.
