I hear that, after intense negotiations with David Kelley about cutting the show’s licensing fee, ABC has renewed Boston Legal for a 5th season. A source tells me: “Watch for the cast to be scaled down to Spader, Shatner, Candace, and fewer people around them.” Sources are telling me that Kelley’s other show for ABC, Life On Mars, “probably will be ordered” and is “looking like it should be officially picked up any minute.” But insiders say it will have new showrunners: October Road alum Josh Applebaum and André Nemec.
