    New York, New York, February 10, 2010 - "Order, order! 'Boston Legal' is now in session on TV Land!" The Primetime Emmy Award-winning hit series created by David E. Kelley premieres on Monday, February 15th with a President's Day marathon from 12pm - 12am EST/PST, showing the best cases, most outrageous moments and most creative storylines that audiences love. During the marathon, TV Land PRIME will offer special character "briefs" on viewers favorite Crane, Poole & Schmidt firm members such as Denny Crane, Alan Shore and Shirley Schmidt, and viewers will learn personal and professional information on the characters as well as everything they need to know about this popular series.
    "The poignant storylines offset by humor and wit skillfully acted and delivered by the infamous and talented William Shatner and Candice Bergen have resonated with audiences making 'Boston Legal' a favorite," states Jaclyn Cohen, senior vice president of programming and acquisitions for TV Land. "TV Land viewers are sure to love this addition to our schedule!"
    Created by David E. Kelley ("Ally McBeal," "The Practice") "Boston Legal" is a one-hour dramedy which ran on ABC for five seasons. The series follows the professional and personal lives of the attorneys at high-priced Boston law firm, Crane, Poole & Schmidt. The on-goings at the firm are made thoroughly entertaining by the talented cast, starring James Spader and television veterans William Shatner and Candice Bergen. Spader garnered two Primetime Emmys for his depiction of Alan Shore, a winning attorney with at times, less-than-ethical tactics. William Shatner received an Emmy and Golden Globe for his role as the quirky Denny Crane, the leading name of the firm, Crane, Poole & Schmidt, a star litigator in his heyday and now adjusting to his evolving role at the firm as he gets older. Candice Bergen, famous for her five-time Emmy-winning portrayal of Murphy Brown stars in "Boston Legal" as Shirley Schmidt, third name in the firm title. Schmidt is a no-nonsense attorney who rejoins the team toward the end of the first season, returning from a stint in New York. Schmidt and Crane were previously involved, which adds yet another layer of entertainment to the plot.

    royally while doing so," TV Academy Chairman-CEO John Shaffner said.
    The inductees were selected by a Hall of Fame selection committee from submissions from TV Academy members and industry
    Top syndication and reality agent, WME partner Mark Itkin, chaired the committee, which included ABC TV Group president Anne
    Sweeney, Fox's president of alternative entertainment Mike Darnell, MTV, VH1, CMT and Logo president of programming Brian
    Graden, TV producer/director Lee Miller and production designer and president of the art directors guild Thomas Walsh.

    Miller will produce the Hall of Fame Gala with Kevin Hamburger.

  • From
    Following the other networks' announcements of their upcoming spring schedules, ABC has finally unveiled its plans for the post-strike return of its shows.  Boston Legal will return April 8.
  • The ION Television network has inked a deal to air Boston Legal repeats on weeknights this fall....
  • ABC has booked "Primetime: What Would You Do?" for Tuesdays at 10:00/9:00c starting February 26. The five-week series takes over for "Boston Legal," which completes its pre-strike run on February 19. Then on Tuesday, April 1 at 10:00/9:00c, look for the Barbara Walters special "Live to Be 150... Can You Do It?" to fill the hour. It's not clear what will assume the Sunday, 10:00/9:00c and Tuesday, 10:00/9:00c slots once the aforementioned runs complete.
  • BL plans to resume production, if the WGA strike comes to a resolution at their meeting the weekend of February 9. Boston Legal could resume production as early as February 20, according to a source on the set. A back-breaking schedule could finish the remaining episodes, although possibly fewer than the normal eight remaining. New episodes could be ready to broadcast by April 8.
