The Practice to Come to an End?

Legal drama The Practice is expected to come to a permanent end when its eighth season wraps in May.

Producer David E. Kelley, married to Michelle Pfeiffer, is currently in talks with ABC to make a new legal drama, which could replace The Practice.

Although ABC and Kelley were encouraged by a revamp of the show - which saw the dismissal of Lara Flynn Boyle, among others, and placed James Spader at the center of the series - financial concerns are expected to lead ABC to opt for a new series which could include Spader and other actors from the Practice.
