Question: About two years ago Gina Galon played on NBC in a P.I. show. Could you please tell me the name of that show? Thank you. — Cheri

Televisionary: I figure you must be talking about Gina Gershon and Snoops, Cheri. If you are, that series actually ran on ABC, launching in September 1999.

Created by David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, The Practice, Boston Public), the series revolved around a group of beauteous private investigators headed by Glenn Hall (Gershon), whose whatever-it-takes methods clashed with those of new recruit and former by-the-book cop Dana Plant (Paula Marshall). Along for the ride were cohorts in crime-solving Roberta Young (Paula Jai Parker) and Manny Lott (Danny Nucci). Unfortunately for what few fans there were, the powers behind the show couldn't solve the mystery of getting viewers to watch, so the show was gone two months later.

One other point of interest. After some friction developed between Marshall and some of the other Snoops-ers, she departed and Jessalyn Gilsig came on board as an FBI agent who wanted to work for the agency. When the show was cancelled, Gilsig jumped to Kelley's Public and found herself a teaching gig.
