Night Court

Shelley Hack was originally slated to play the role of public defender Christine Sullivan on the second season of Night Court in 1984. "I'll be doing my research at the New York court," Shelley said. "I always look forward to researching a role. It will be interesting." Christine Sullivan was to be introduced in the second episode of the season entitled "Daddy for the Defense." But after two days of shooting, Shelley was dropped from the cast when producer Reinhold Weege decided she wasn't right for the part. "After growing conflicts between the producer and actress, it was mutually decided at the 11th hour that she wasn't right for Night Court." Wouldn't it be great if Shelley's lost Night Court scenes were to surface?

A timeline of Shelley's public appearances, from the time she started modeling in 1964 up until the present. There aren't any pics available from 2001 and from 2003 to 2008 (She was very busy managing SHMC - Shelley Hack Media Consultancy during this period. Pics from this era would be gold.) The pics range from modeling ads and editorials, movie and TV publicity stills to paparazzi and fan snaps. Shelley never looked so good.

Shelley played Billie Dawn in the Pennsylvania Stage Co.'s production of Born Yesterday in 1982. Shelley's acting was finally getting noticed. After getting great reviews for Vanities in 1981, she was again being praised for this role.

Sylvia Lawler wrote (in 1986), "That she acquitted herself endearingly enough in Born Yesterday came as something of a surprise to a lot of people." The Call reviewer wrote that Shelley's performance had "a touching and engaging innocence."

House Arrest Movie Cameo

Shelley's last movie (theatrical release) to date, is House Arrest, 1996. Directed by her husband Harry Winer, the movie starred Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Pollak, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Tilly, to name a few.

Also in the cast is Shelley and Harry's daughter Rosie Winer (as she is credited) who played a flower girl in the flashback scene in the movie.

Shelley is uncredited in the film but her character actually has a name. She is Dr. Erica Gilliland, Ph.D., writer of the book Feel The Fear And Go For It. Dr. Gilliland only appears on a TV screen and on the back cover of her book. Shelley's appearance in the film is short but delightful.
