Happy Anniversary, Simon & Simon !

CBS Premiere Date: November 24, 1981!

Starring: Gerald McRaney as Richard „Rick“ Simon, Jameson Parker as Andrew Jackson „A.J.“ Simon, Mary Carver as Cecilia Simon, Tim Reid as Lieutenant Marcel „Downtown“ Brown

 

„Simon & Simon features two brothers who run a private detective agency in San Diego, California. Richard „Rick“ Simon (Gerald McRaney, „Major Dad“) is a street-smart Vietnam vet with blue-collar tastes. His college-educated younger brother, Andrew Jackson „A.J.“ Simon (Jameson Parker, „Prince of Darkness“), is more sophisticated and straitlaced.

The brothers are polar opposites whose vastly different approaches to life often come into conflict on the job. Laid-back, with a fondness for four-wheel-drive pickup trucks, ex-Marine Rick relies on his instincts to solve cases. A.J. is fastidious and prefers to follow the rules and solve cases by the book. Under the watchful eye of their mother, Cecilia (Mary Carver, „From Here to Eternity,“ „ER“), and with the assistance of their friend in the police department, Lieutenant Marcel „Downtown“ Brown (Tim Reid, „WKRP in Cincinnati,“ „Frank’s Place“), Rick and A.J. work together to pursue criminals such as kidnappers, computer hackers, crooked concert ticket brokers, counterfeiters and killers.“

From LA Times obituaries
 

May 3, 1924 – October 18, 2013 Mary Carver, 89, died October 18 at home following a brief illness. She was born in Los Angeles, CA, May 3, 1924 to Carmen Delmar and John Carvellas. Ms Carver was active in film, stage, and television for more than 60 years. She starred as Cecilia Simon in the hit television series Simon and Simon; she appeared in such films as From Here to Eternity, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, Arachnophobia and many more. She also appeared on Broadway in The Shadow Box as well as in The Fifth of July and taught in the theater department at the University of Southern California. Mary loved to travel, loved to argue politics and was an inveterate flirt! She will be missed. She is survived by her daughters Lia Sargent of Hollywood, and Athena Sargent and son-in-law John Sergneri of Petaluma, California, and lots and lots of friends. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Motion Picture and Television Fund (MPTF) „In Memory of Mary Carver,“ 23388 Mulholland Dr., Woodland Hills, CA 91364.

She will be missed.
