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?
