"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 »
A low key Sitcom/drama that never found the right audience the show deserved. Its one of the good shows I used to watched on CBS that I wished was still on. Good performances were given by acting veterans like Burt Reynolds and Marilu Henner. "Evening Shade"(1990) had some interesting episodes that dealt with fascinating themes. Ossie Davis brought class to a television show which deserved better than what it got.
