Boston Legal is a spin-off of the long-running David E. Kelley series The Practice (1997), following the exploits of former Practice character Alan Shore (James Spader) at the legal firm of Crane, Poole, and Schmidt.
Regular cast members William Shatner, Rene Auberjonois, and John Larroquette have all appeared in the Star Trek franchise. Several other former Star Trek cast members have guest-starred in the show: Armin Shimerman, Jeri Ryan, Ethan Phillips, Michelle Forbes, Scott Bakula, and Lee Duncan. Lesser "speaking" roles were held by Ellen Bry, David Clennon, Michael Wiseman, Ron Ostrow, Alan Ruck, Derek Magyar, and Lawrence Pressman.
May I express a thought, because I so rarely get one, and I should preface this by saying that I'm so far up the ass of big business I view the world as one giant colon.
Throughout the series, Alan Shore and Denny Crane sit on the balcony overlooking the city of Boston. However, during the cold winter months, you never see the breath of either character, thus demonstrating that the "balcony" is part of a set, and not an actual location.
