Shelley starred as Jackie Shea in the 1986-1987 TV series Jack and Mike. Initially titled Jackie O'Shea (as a solo vehicle for Shelley,) the series was renamed Our Kind of Town and then finally Jack and Mike. Tom Mason was cast as Jackie's husband, Mike Brennan and got equal billing. The chemistry between the two actors was apparent in a TV movie they both did a year prior, Kicks. Tom played Caleb, Maggie Pierson's concerned boyfriend. Maggie was, of course, played by Shelley.
