Kathy Bates eyeing role in 'Kindreds'

Kathy Bates is in final negotiations to star in her first regular TV role, David E. Kelley's NBC drama pilot "Kindreds."

"Kindreds" follows a curmudgeonly former patent lawyer (Bates) and her group of misfit associates. The character was conceived as a man, Harry Korn, but is being reworked for Bates.

The Oscar winner, who appeared in an episode of the Kelley-produced legal drama "L.A. Law," is doing an arc on NBC's top comedy "The Office." She is repped by ICM and the Susan Smith Co.
