John Larroquette is returning to TV as the smooth-talking cop-turned-attorney who tries to solve a mystery surrounding his latest client in “McBride: The Chameleon Murder.” It airs on the Hallmark Channel on Jan. 14.
The character was conceived by Dean Hargrove, creator of “Columbo.”
Larroquette says he became an actor to avoid business. “I’ve always said if I’d been better educated I’d have become something important but, as it is, I’m an actor. Whatever lack of discipline I had in the ’60s, whatever pseudo philosophy I thought I was adopting in the ‘love-generation-down-with-the-establishment,’ yada, yada, yada. I never really felt that but it was a good excuse not to have to go to work.”

MTV to survey “Sweet 16” bashes
If you think a kickin’ birthday party means pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, an ice cream cake and maybe an innocent game of spin-the-bottle, you’re clearly not hip enough to be the focus of an MTV series. The cable network will look at extravagant Sweet 16 birthday bashes in the new series “My Super Sweet 16.”
MTV has ordered six episodes of the series, set to premiere after “Real World: Philadelphia” Jan. 18. The series looks at the goofiest and most expensive coming-of-age parties, focusing on the girls who demand them and the parents who shell out the big bucks.
