In her first TV role since NBC grounded “LAX,” Heather Locklear has booked a two-episode arc on ABC’s “Boston Legal.”
Gig reunites her with “Legal” exec producer David E. Kelley, who cast Locklear in a 2002 episode of “Ally McBeal.” Locklear will play an exotic murder defendant — dubbed “the Black Widow” — who’s accused of poisoning her older hubby.
Episodes are expected to air during the May sweeps.
Also, NBC has decided to burn off the remaining episodes of “LAX” over the next three Saturday nights.
On the feature front, Locklear will next star alongside Hilary Duff in “The Perfect Man.”
