DAVID E. KELLEY, the prolific writer-producer behind such era-encapsulating hits as "Ally McBeal" and "The Practice," wrote the script for the pilot to Life On Mars a new time-traveling cop drama from ABC. It's based on the BBC show of the same name, which already has a cult following over here due to its run on BBC America.

But with its premiere still months away, the series has already suffered an exceptionally bumpy ride into the future, even by the Alice-in-Wonderland standards of television program development.
