Boston Public

David E. Kelley abandoned his attorneys for a while and created a show about Winslow High School in Boston, a fictional inner-city school that was always short on cash but long on dedicated teachers. Kelley employed his usual mix of soapish drama, humor and the occasional touch of absurdity; it was fresh and interesting. The writers addressed many social issues and the problems teenagers were concerned with, but the show did lose steam after a while and was canceled before a proper finale could be taped. Always reliable were the performances by Chi McBride, Anthony Heald and Loretta Devine as complex, flawed but devoted educators.Ā
