Robin Williams eyes David E. Kelley TV comedy

Today in "things we'd like to see come to pass, at least as a pilot" is a report from Entertainment Weekly that Robin Williams is eyeing a potential return to TV.

It seems the actor is discussing an opportunity to star in a comedy from David E. Kelley that would likely find a home on CBS.

The half-hour sitcom is described by EW as a single-camera, advertising workplace comedy that centers on a dad and his daughter.

If all goes well, Kelley would write and produce, with Bill D'Elia as executive producer and Williams as the star. Although the actor has had great film success, we haven't seen what he can do as a lead in a TV series since "Mork and Mindy," which ended its run 30 years ago.

    He is fuzzy. In Alaska we would make him into a rug for drooling baby.

    Robin Williams is truly a funny & gifted man. I'm sure that with Robin & David E. Kelley working together, it will be a really good show. I'm glad he's coming back.

    That would be awesome. They say he is a nice guy and looks cooler now that he is older. Kinda looks like an old stoner. Good for him.
