It's Miami thrice this year on the network prime-time development slates. NBC is developing a comedy called "Good Morning, Miami," where a young producer takes over a low-rated morning show and develops a crush on a co-worker. Perfect for Miami: He lives with his grandma. CBS has "CSI" spinoff "CSI: Miami" and NBC offers the drama "Miss Miami" about a female FBI agent and her partner.
"Ally McBeal" producer David E. Kelley goes back and forth on whether he wants to bring the ratings-lagging show back for another season-but he's leaning toward pulling the plug, says a person familiar with the matter. Fox is largely leaving the decision up to Kelley. But Fox wants "to see some reason to keep it going," the person says. Kelley may want one more season that concludes with Ally in a good relationship, the person says. Fox had no comment.
