Jackie and Mike

Shelley's third foray into series TV was Jack and Mike, where she played Jackie Shea, a married yuppie who worked for a newspaper. Her husband, played by Tom Mason, was Mike Brennan, a successful restauranteur who owned three hip restaurants in Chicago where the couple lived. The show came right after Moonlighting and received decent ratings but was cancelled after only one season despite a few raves from some critics. Let's hope Shelley decides to return to series TV. Her fans sorely miss her.
