Equipped to Hold Her Own

The 1986 Jack and Mike (Viol A La Une) pilot
was released on VHS in France

Shelley's third TV series was Jack and Mike in 1986. She played Jackie Shea a leading Chicago journalist who was married to Mike Brennan (played by Tom Mason), a successful restaurateur in the same town. The upwardly-mobile power couple was so busy with their careers, they had to schedule time to be together. That was the premise of the show. Shelley's acting had already improved vastly when she did the series. As one writer put it, "Hack is now equipped to hold her own with (Tom) Mason". Read an article about the series at:
