Jack and Mike

1 9 8 6 – 1 9 8 7 (USA)
16 x 60 minute episodes


Jackie “Jack” Shea (Shelley Hack) is a famous hard-hitting newspaper columnist with the Chicago Mirror and Mike Brennan (Tom Mason) is a restaurateur and owner of the hip 1935 Cafe. The couple live a fast-paced life and their careers often interfere in their plans.

Carol (Holly Fulger) is the head waitress at one of Mike’s restaurants. Nora (Jacqueline Brookes) is the editor and Anthony a reporter at the newspaper, and Rick (Vincent Baggetta) is an attorney who appeared occasionally.

Kathleen (Carol Potter) is Mike’s sister, and Mary (Beatrice Straight) and John (James Green) are his parents.

Jack and Mike aired at 10:00 pm following Moonlighting on the ABC schedule and owed more than a little to the David and Maddie characters on that show.
