TVLine has learned exclusively that 1970s TV icons Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man) and Shirley Jones (The Partridge Family) will appear this fall on Fox’s Raising Hope, playing Burt’s parents. So come on, get happy!
Majors, who is also well-known as TV’s Fall Guy and from The Big Valley, last hit the smaller screen with a guest spot on $#*! My Dad Says. Jones as of late has been working the TV-movie circuit, plus she guested on A&E’s The Cleaner and her son Patrick Cassidy’s short-lived ABC Family comedy, Ruby & the Rockits series. (Her film credits of course include Oklahoma! and Elmer Gantry, for which she won an Oscar).
Raising Hope‘s sophomore season kicks off next Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 9:30/8:30c, leading out of Fox’s buzzy new New Girl.
