Glenn Gordon Caron, who launched Bruce Willis’ career in the 1980s with ABC’s groundbreaking private investigator comedy “Moonlighting,” is getting back in the gumshoe game with a proposed series based on real-life New Jersey licensed investigator Pamela Slaton, according to Deadline Hollywood.
But while David Addison and Maddie Hayes usually focused on murder mysteries, Slaton specializes in reuniting clients with long-lost relatives and loves. The real Slaton starred in her own series, “Searching For …” which aired on OWN.
Since the long-ago cancellation of “Moonlighting,” Caron has kept himself busy creating the short-lived but brilliant sci-fi dramedy “Now And Again” (starring Eric Close and Dennis Haysbert) and the long-lived sci-fi dramedy “Medium.”
