Boston Legal is a spin-off of the long-running Kelley series The Practice, following the exploits of former Practice character Alan Shore (James Spader) at the legal firm of Crane, Poole and Schmidt.
David E. Kelley gave away the rights to the American adaptation of Life on Mars after making a failed pilot in exchange for a final season of this show, with the minimum of episodes necessary for Boston Legal to achieve syndication.
