Kelley is the creative force behind such beloved television series as “Doogie Howser, M.D.,” “Picket Fences,” “Chicago Hope,” “Ally McBeal,” “The Practice,” “Boston Public,” “Big Little Lies,” and “Big Sky.” So, needless to say, the 65-year-old David E. Kelley is a serious player in the television game.

Of course, Regina King is a force to be reckoned with as well. The 50-year-old star has earned much respect for her roles in both television shows and in movies. King appeared in the films “Ray,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” and “Miss Congeniality 2.” King also had roles in such television shows as “Watchmen,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “The Leftovers,” “Shameless,” and “24.” She also directed the critically acclaimed film, “One Night In Miami.”
