Earth to ABC: Kelley preps Mars attack

Boston Legal creator David E. Kelley is going back in time with an ABC project based on the BBC's 2006 sci-fi crime drama Life on Mars.

The show, targeted for fall 2007, follows the exploits of a 21st-century detective who, following a car crash, mysteriously finds himself working as a cop in the 1970s.

Kelley is set to write the pilot script and to executive-produce the pilot. It marks his first stab at the crime-drama genre since the short-lived 1999 series Snoops, also on ABC.

Life on Mars, named after the David Bowie song, debuted on BBC 1 on January 9 with an initial run of eight episodes. It stars John Simm.

Kelley's other credits include The Practice and Ally McBeal.
