The Hollywood star has plenty to be proud of when it comes to the new drama, since her husband, David E. Kelley, produced it too. 

Dedee didn't plan to follow in her famous sibling's acting footsteps, but it happened more by accident. 

"I became an actor through trial and error," she said in an interview on Medium. "Long story short, by the time I was 18 years old, I had been working numerous jobs since I was ten.

Speaking about the group date at a bowling alley, Michelle - who has another sister, Lori - told Candis magazine: "He [David] talked to my sister and I talked to his friend, and he and my sister seemed to be hitting it off, so I thought maybe we should set them up instead, but the friend who was setting us up said, 'Don’t you dare.'"

Her friend was right! Michelle and David have been happily married for 27 years and share two children together.
