Pam Dawber back on TV with ... who else? Robin Williams
Pam Dawber -- who's been effectively out of the TV business, or at least the in-front-of-the-camera part of the TV business for many years now -- will do a cameo on "The Crazy Ones" later this season, CBS has announced.
Dawber was mostly famously on "Mork & Mindy" as Mindy from 1978 to 1982, and later, "My Sister Sam." She hasn't had a credited role as best I can tell in more than a decade. However, viewers of "The Tonight Show" the other night may have caught a quick glimpse of the beautiful and elusive Dawber -- offstage. She's been married for decades to another legend, actor Mark Harmon, who was on the show.
Here's what CBS says about this reasonably exciting cameo:
In the episode, Dawber plays a free-spirited author who goes on a date with Williams’ Simon Roberts soon after his faith in everlasting love is shaken by the breakup of a couple near and dear to him. "It will be a joy to work with her again," said Williams. "It's a dream come true." "I'm so excited to be able to see and work with Robin again," said Dawber. "I hear 'The Crazy Ones’ set is a very happy one. I know it'll be a great week!"
