A comedy-drama series created by David E. Kelley and airing on FOX, Boston Public basically told the story of the Teen Drama from the point of view of the teachers. It took place in Winslow High, a public high school in Boston, hence the show's title. Boston Public was basically DegrassiIn America!, except the teachers are the troubled ones. The show lasted from October 2000 to January 2004. A total of 81 episodes in four seasons.

And in Season Four, he ends up with an ex-porn star. ("At least she's a Democrat," he tells Steven.)
Luke, You Are My Father: Harvey finds out in Season 2 that he has an African-American son, grandson and great-grandchildren.
