Calendar Events / Announcements '07 II / Diana Millay's mother
« on: December 06, 2007, 11:50:50 PM »
From Robert Finocchio (Thanks, Nancy!):

... After a long, wonderful life, Diana Millay's mother, Claire S. Geng,  has passed away.  Having been her rock of gibraltar for her entire life, Diana is understandably feeling a bit lost.  If any of you are in touch with her (especially those of you who have met/known Claire) and would like to express your thoughts, I know that she would appreciate it.

If you could pass the word among the DS fans, their support would mean a great deal at this sad time.

This is a special, not an ongoing TV series. However, if the ratings and response are good, the network may return it as a special or pick it up as a regular series.

« on: November 18, 2007, 06:11:48 PM »
Immediately following David Selby's Cold Case ep (we know what the Psychos for Selby will be watching tonite :P), Michael Cavanaugh (Sheriff Patterson) can be seen on Shark in what has now become a recurring role.

Cavanaugh turns 65 on Wednesday (a few days shy of Susan Sullivan, whose birthday is today)!

The Forum Calendar has a link to the Cold Case topic.
