MUMBAI: English general entertainment channel Star World will air the courtroom drama Boston Legal every Wednesday at 8 pm from 21 June. Episodes will repeat every Thursday at 11 am and on Sunday at 4 pm.

The show confronts social and moral issues, while its characters continually stretch the boundaries of the law.The show has won two Emmies and two People's Choice Award nominee. Boston Legal is about the professional and personal stories of a group of brilliant but often emotionally challenged attorneys.

Alan Shore and Denny Crane lead a brigade of high-priced civil litigators in an upscale Boston law firm. Shore, an unscrupulous and wily ambulance chaser and womaniser played by James Spader finds an uneasy alliance with Crane, a pompous, snooty and occasionally batty elder lawyer played by William Shatner.

Despite their ethical and emotional deficiencies, Shore and Crane usually find themselves fighting on the right side, as they take up cases that no one else is willing to touch.

The first season kicks off with oddball situations including: Shore, on a dare, taking the case of an African-American actress denied the role of Annie; Crane caught having an affair with the firm's biggest client; Shore representing an ex-lover who had attempted to murder him; Shore defending a millionaire CEO caught shoplifting, and a Sanata fired for being a transvestite. Adding even more mayhem to the madcap cases, the sexual chemistry at the firm begins to boil over, and both Shore and Crane find themselves compromised with the various female lawyers.
