Pam Dawber will appear on an episode of The Crazy Ones with her former Mork and Mindy co-star.
According to TV Guide, Dawber, who played Mindy in the iconic sitcom Mork and Mindy, will play an uninhibited travel writer "who catches the eye of Williams' ad agency exec, Simon." The episode, which will air this spring, will be Dawber's first TV appearance since the 1999 movie Don't Look Behind You.
The alien Mork was Williams' breakout role. The series aired for four years on ABC from 1978 to 1982. It was a spinoff of a Happy Days episode in which Mork attempts to kidnap Ron Howard's Richie Cunningham. Dawber's Mindy was Mork's love interest, wife, and mother of his backwards-aging child, played by the late great Jonathan Winters.
The Crazy Ones is Williams' much celebrated return to TV, which airs on Thursdays on CBS. The show has done decently well in the ratings, as its most recent new episode managed a 2.4 in the 18-49 demographic.
Earlier Thursday Williams Tweeted about his excitement for the reunion.
