David E. Kelley’s Emmy® Award-winning legal drama returns for an eighth and final season that paves the way for its critically acclaimed spin-off, Boston Legal.
Major upheavals have left Ellenor (Camryn Manheim), Eugene (Steve Harris) and Jimmy (Michael Badalucco) in charge of the firm. In an attempt to rebuild their ranks, Ellenor hires an old friend: the enigmatic and ethically-challenged Alan Shore (James Spader). Shore’s brilliant-yet-highly-unorthodox methods succeed in winning big cases — but will they also threaten the future of the firm?
A must-own for fans of Boston Legal, The Practice: The Final Season features not only the debut of Alan Shore, but early appearances from Tara Wilson (Rhona Mitra), Catherine Piper (Betty White), Sally Heep (Lake Bell)…and the legendary attorney Denny Crane (William Shatner).
As a series, The Practice earned a Golden Globe® Award for Best Drama Series, twenty-eight Primetime Emmy nominations and the Peabody® Award, setting the bar high for Boston Legal, in which Spader and Shatner’s continued portrayals of Alan Shore and Denny Crane would lead to two more Emmy wins for Spader (2005, 2007) and an Emmy and Golden Globe (2005) win for Shatner.
