I have read in the past that the creator of Psych is an admitted huge fan of Moonlighting. And that he writes in little bits as homage to the show in his show. Now it is announced that next season, Cybill is joining the cast as a recurring character, playing Shawn's mom. Cool for her! Psych is a funny show.
Cybill Shepherd Gets ‘PSYCH’d Golden Globe-Winning Actress Joins USA Network Series By Larry Barrett -- Multichannel News, 4/25/2008 10:44:00 AM Cybill Shepherd of Moonlighting, Cybill and The Last Picture Show fame will join the cast of USA Network’s drama-comedy PSYCH when the series returns for its third season in July, the network said Friday.
Shepherd will appear in a recurring role as “Madeleine,” the mother of “Shawn Spencer” (James Roday) and the ex-wife of “Henry Spencer” (Corbin Bernsen). “Madeleine” is a private psychologist who has also worked freelance over the years for the Santa Barbara Police Department.
“She is a free spirit who spent the last few years living abroad, and quite clearly the source of Shawn’s adventurous side and similar joie de vivre,” the network said in a statement. “She returns from Europe and shows up to visit Shawn and Henry, stirring up memories and issues and a bit of trouble.”
Created, written and executive produced by Steve Franks, PSYCH averaged 4.6 million viewers per episode and a 3.4 rating during its second season.
Oh wow! This is awesome! I've never watched the show but have heard it's funny and did read somewhere when it came out that there was some type of ML similarities(sp?). I'm always so psyched HEHEHE to see our Cybill in new tv shows. I've been so enjoying her on TheLWord. I'm hoping she returns for the last year to that also. YAY for her! She justs get better and better! Will be watching her!
