Shelley and Tom Mason of the cover of Television in 1986
Shelley starred in her third TV series in 1986. It was called Jack and Mike. It was about a couple trying to make their contemporary marriage work. Unlike in previous decades, women in the 1980s were getting better and better opportunities in the workforce. Women were beginning to get the chance to become truly independent and successful on their own - which meant dependence on men wasn't on the table anymore. And due to this, the dynamics between husband and wife within a marriage was changing as well. And this is what Jack and Mike was about. It was about a Yuppie couple trying to make their contemporary marriage work. Shelley and Tom were great in the series. But unfortunately, it lasted for only a season. Let's hope it's released on DVD soon.
