LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has opted to retitle its upcoming spin-off of "The Practice." Originally branded "The Practice: Fleet Street," the series will now feature the simpler moniker "Boston Legal."
No reason was given for the change. Here's how ABC's press materials describe the series:
Alan Shore and Denny Crane lead the brigade of high-priced civil litigators in an upscale Boston law firm in a series focusing on the professional and personal lives of brilliant, but often emotionally-challenged, attorneys. Fast-paced, darkly comedic, the series will confront social issues, moral conscience, safe sex, pursuit of happiness and money, with varying degrees of priority. Escape to the law firm on One Fleet Street. Where anything goes� and often will.
