Kathy Bates eyeing role in 'Kindreds'
David E. Kelley pilot would mark her first regular TV role
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.
