Peacock Is Fueled by Crime Dramas, and David E. Kelley’s New Mystery Series Is Just the Latest
David E. Kelley has been a TV legend since the ’80s — and he’s shown no signs of stopping, being responsible for some of the most-discussed television shows of the last few years, thanks to hits such as “Big Little Lies,” “The Undoing,” and “Nine Perfect Strangers.” Now, Kelley is hoping to replicate his more recent successes at HBO and Hulu via “The Missing,” a new crime drama series that is slated to premiere on Peacock.

Peacock announced a straight-to-series order for “The Missing” on Monday. Kelley will serve as showrunner, writer, and executive producer on the eight-episode series, which is based on the international bestselling novel “The Missing File,” the first in a series of books written by Israeli crime writer Dror A.
