Star World to air 'Boston Public'

MUMBAI: The Boston Public will now become more familiar to Indian viewers as Star World brings in David E Kelley's series from 25 April in the 10-pm slot.

It will be an all-new season from David E Kelley, the Emmy Award-winning creator of Ally McBeal and The Practice.

The show is a dramatic, sometimes comedic, behind-the-scenes look at the personal and professional lives of teachers working at a mid-size high school in Boston.

Boston Public has never been shy about addressing tough issues, which exists in the education system. But it also never gets preachy or boring.

That's thanks largely to the hodge-podge of characters, which make up the teachers of Winslow High. There's the firm but fair principal Steven Harper (Chi McBride), the protective teacher Marylin Sudor (Sharon Leal), the erratic and risky Marla Hendricks (Loretta Devine), and of course, the unforgettably nostalgic and comic Harvey Lipschultz (Emmy winner Fyvush Finkel), among others.

Whatever their differences and idiosyncrasies, they all share one thing in common - their unwavering passion for teaching, a stock belief that they can make a difference, and that everyone can be human.

And in this school, that philosophy holds especially true for the teachers - who send the rules to get things done and are never afraid to deal with the personal issue behind the a public face.
