Representing the point at which American television reached a level of mature artistry, MOONLIGHTING took the medium to new heights of sophistication while maintaining a sense of lighthearted fun. Fusing the drama and comedy genres while offering convoluted plotlines filled with 'serious' situations and cultural references, the show delivered laughs according to the tropes of more straightforward sitcoms. The show is focused on uncompromising former model Maddie Hayes (Cybill Shepherd, THE LAST PICTURE SHOW), who loses her fortune to an embezzling accountant; all she has left are a few money-losing businesses retained as tax write-offs. Among these is the Blue Moon Detective Agency, which Maddie plans to sell off until the fast-talking detective David Addison (Bruce Willis, DIE HARD, THE SIXTH SENSE, PULP FICTION) convinces her that the business can turn a profit. The two form a partnership, solving the eccentric cases that are forever turning up at Blue Moon. Meanwhile, the wisecracking, smart, but slovenly David and the beautiful, icy, slightly snobbish Maddie navigate the growing romantic tension between them. In the first two series, Maddie and David discover a dead body that goes missing as soon as they report it; a woman who thinks she's a leprechaun wants to hire Blue Moon's services; and a man who has put a hit on himself hires Dave and Maddie to call it off.
