Cutter Publicity Pic

from the 1983 TV series Cutter to Houston
Shelley starred in her second TV Series Cutter to Houston in 1983. She starred with two up-and-coming actors Jim Metzler and Alec Baldwin. Shelley was the "name" actor among the three having been in Charlie's Angels three years prior; while Jim Mezler had just received glowing reviews for his performance in the 1982 film Tex and Alec Baldwin had just jumped to prime time TV from the daytime soap opera The Doctors (where he starred from 1980 to 1982.) Although the series had good scripts, it received mixed reviews and was unfortunately canceled after just seven episodes with two episodes left un-aired. Subsequent replays of the series aired all nine episodes intact though.
