For the first time in 30 years, the former Mork from Ork could be back on the tube. Robin Williams is working on a half-hour sitcom from David E. Kelley, and CBS is considering picking it up, the Hollywood Reporter reveals. The single-camera show tells the story of a father and daughter who work in advertising together. Kelley and Bill D'Elia, who worked together on Boston Legal and Ally McBeal, among others, would executive produce. No word on how close it is to airing. (More Robin Williams stories.)
