Marching onto LIVING from Thursday 28 Febriurary is the American ensemble drama Army Wives. Produced by Mark Gordon (Grey’s Anatomy), it follows the struggles, dreams and friendships of four women and one man who are united by the common experience of having a spouse in the military. Its sensitive handling of issues including alcoholism, post-traumatic stress and marital strife has already made it a massive hit Stateside, where it averaged a respectable 3.5 million viewers.

Recently voted Best New TV Drama by The People’s Choice Awards 2008 in the USA, Moonlight is already leaving its mark on Stateside viewers and arrives on LIVING this month.

Private Investigator Mick St John (Alex O’Loughlin, Detective Kevin Hiatt in The Shield) is a vampire who ironically makes it his mission to help people, rather than adhere to the usual vampiric tendencies. He teams up with beautiful and tenacious reporter Beth Turner (Sophia Myles, Lady Penelope in the "Thunderbirds" movie, as well as Reinette in the Doctor Who episode "Girl In The Fireplace").

Mick makes it his mission to uncover murders and mysteries, and protect the innocent. Garlic and ornate crucifixes are no match for this modern-day vampire; a stake through the heart will only render a vampire paralysed ... but only until someone kindly removes it.

Shatner's back on LIVINGtv for a fourth season of legal fun ...


The fourth series of the smash-hit US legal drama from the multi-award-winning maestro of legal drama David E Kelley (Ally McBeal, LA Law) comes back exclusively to LIVING on Thursday 31 January at 10.00pm.

Set in the morally dubious world of high-priced litigation at a Boston law firm, the show has garnered both critical acclaim and major awards. Both its leading men, James Spader and William Shatner, have won Emmy Awards for their roles, while Shatner has also been honoured with a Golden Globe. This series also sees Hollywood actress Saffron Burrows ("Enigma", "Troy") join the cast.

Fast-paced and darkly comic, Boston Legal follows the personal and professional lives of the litigators at Crane, Poole and Schmidt. Five times Emmy-winner Candice Bergen plays Shirley Schmidt, the firm’s founding partner who continually tries to bring order to the chaotic office.

Other members of the practice include Jerry ‘Hands’ Espenson (Christian Clemenson - a guest star who has now become a series regular), a lawyer with Asperger’s Syndrome, and Clarence Bell (Gary Anthony Williams), an attorney whose feelings of inadequacy cripple him to such an extent he often switches between personalities, meaning he is also known as Clarice, Clevant and Oprah.

In a captivating series premiere, Shirley asks Alan Shore (Spader) to represent her when she is sued after withdrawing her donation to a university. Alan is happy to help, but is distracted when he discovers that the opposing council is one of his ex-girlfriends (Burrows). Also, Denny Crane (Shatner) is arrested for soliciting a prostitute, and no-nonsense attorney Carl Sack (John Larroquette) joins the team. Sack immediately puts Clarence’s nose out of joint when he berates him after uncovering a video of ‘Clarice’ performing at a local dance competition.

Also joining the cast is Tara Summers as Katie Lloyd, a 'freshman' lawyer who immediately finds herself defending a murder suspect who doesn't want to be defended. Born in London, Tara trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, guest-starred on a trio of episodes of Dirt, and was also seen in the movies "Wha A Girl Wants", "Factory Girl" and "Rabbit Fever".

The show was originally going to be called The Practice: Fleet Street, as it was designed as a civil law spin-off from that series (another of the David E Kelly stable, which also includes Doogie Howser MD, Picket Fences, and Chicago Hope).

An accomplished actor, James Spader appeared alongside Maggie Gyllenhaal in the critically-acclaimed film, "Secretary" which won the 2002 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize for Originality. Spader also starred in "Speaking of Sex", "Supernova", "Slow Burn", "Critical Care" and "Crash".

The characters of both Shore and Crane originally made their debut in The Practice. Brad Chase (Mark Valley - previous the lead in Keen Eddie) has left the show this season. Mark Valley's career began when he was discovered by an agent in Berlin, and his first role was working in John Schlesinger's "The Innocent", which starred Anthony Hopkins and was filmed in Germany. Mark made an impact on television viewers with his lead role in Pasadena, as well as in recurring roles on ER and Once and Again, plusguest spots on CSI, The Lone Gunmen and Gideon's Crossing. He also featured in the long-running daytime drama Days of Our Lives.

Rene Auberjonois (Odo in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) who was Paul Lewiston, has also left the regular roster of the series, along with Julie Bowen (who played Denise Bauer) and Constance Zimmer (Claire Simms). The show already has a reputation of regularly freshening up the line-up of its less quirky characters each season.
