A 'Mork & Mindy' Reunion Is Happening On 'The Crazy Ones'
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Nanu-Nanu! TV Line has confirmed that a "Mork & Mindy" reunion is happening! The classic series ran from 1978-1982, starring Robin Williams as alien Mork from the planet Ork, who crash lands on earth and befriends an earthling, Mindy, played by Pam Dawber. Now Williams and Dawber will reunite on Williams' new series, "The Crazy Ones." TV Line explains that Dawber "will play a travel writer who crosses paths with Williams’ ad exec, Simon, at a signing for her latest book. Simon is instantly smitten." Last year Williams nixed revisiting Mork during a Reddit Ask Me Anything, but he never said anything about reuniting with his former co-star. The episode with Dawber will air sometime this spring. Here's the "Mork & Mindy" theme song to get you really pumped for the reunion: "The Crazy Ones" airs Thurs. at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.
