"Harlan & Merleen" an unsold hour long pilot for an "Evening Shade" spin-off aired as a 2 part special on 7/13 and 7/20/93. It starred Charles Durning and Ann Wedgeworth in their "Evening Shade" roles and was written by 'James Hampton' and 'Burt Reynolds' [who also directed]. See more »
I admired many of Burt Reynolds performances... he never seemed to take himself seriously but would take on any kind of role. Comedy to drama, to action and playing a lovable character to a despicable jerk. That is acting. He has done well at that and has the box office and numerous awards to back it up, but when he surrounded himself with a bunch of close friends who also happened to be first rate actors... the magic of Evening Shade happened. Well scripted first rate story lines all fluidly performed by this stellar cast. I often surf the net looking for information on a DVD box set release. Shows of much less stature, and certainly much less quality are already out so I keep on hoping to spend some more quality TV viewing evenings... in the town of Evening Shade!
