David E. Kelley may be stepping down from his co-producer role on ‘Life on Mars,’ a new sci-fi series based on the original BBC sci-fi crime drama. The series aims to be a contender for ABC’s lineup next season.
Casting problems have plagued the show since Kelley first brought it to ABC. Jason O’Mara was originally cast in the lead. ABC Studios will join 20th Century Fox TV if Kelley departs.
