Viewers who thought Cagney and Lacey were an ambiguously gay duo may have been onto something. As reported in the current issue of TV Guide magazine (on sale now), Less Than Perfect's exec producer, Christine Zander, approached Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless to guest-star on the ABC sitcom as the lesbian parents of resident oddball Owen (Andy Dick). Gless was up for it, but Daly nixed the reunion. "It would have been brilliant," says Zander. "Strictly dream casting." On the plus side, we hear that Jane Curtin and Susan Saint James are available.
