TV LAND SENTENCES VIEWERS TO COURTROOM DRAMA AND LAUGHTER WHEN "BOSTON LEGAL" JOINS THE TV LAND PRIME LINE-UP ON FEBRUARY 15TH

Network To Kick Off Premiere With A Marathon Of The Most Popular Episodes On President's Day

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.
