Earlier today, Kellie Martin and Chad Lowe participated in a Facebook Live chat with “Extra’s” Tanika Ray at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Now starring in “Hailey Dean Mysteries” on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Kellie and Chad first appeared together as boyfriend and girlfriend in the drama series “Life Goes On,” which ran from 1989 to 1993 on ABC. The show, which centered on a suburban family that includes a child with Down syndrome, played by Chris Burke, won Chad an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor.
With all of the reboots happening on TV today, is there a chance that “Life Goes On” could return?
Kellie answered, “We’ve talked about it. I know Patti (LuPone) would be in and I’m sure we could get Chris. I would love it. I feel like it would be really interesting to see where Chris Burke, who played Corky, is today. He still is amazing and I think it would be really interesting to see what his needs are and how he navigates his life today.”
As for what it would take to bring the series back, Kellie said, “Ask for it!” Chad added, “You have to petition. It would be very timely.”
"Hailey Dean Mysteries: A Marriage Made for Murder" premieres Sunday, June 10, on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
