Lane Davies investigates in Moscow

This is the surprise of the re-opening on the Russian television : Lane Davies joined the cast of the new cop show of the channel ORT, A Force of One. By the way, the ex-Mason Capwell in Santa Barbara did not decide to be exiled far from his family and friends : the show, an American-Russian coproduction, is partly shot in Los Angeles. Lane plays a police detective of Los Angeles, helped in his work by a Russian police officer who left his country to reapproach his American wife.

Around Rodion Nakhapetov, star in Russia and first role of the show of which he is also the writer and one of the directors, Lane has the opportunity to work with other personalities of television and cinema as the actress Sean Young (who plays his wife), or Gary Busey in the role of his hierarchical superior.

A Force of One wanting to please in priority the public of Russia, several scenes has been shot directly on place, which allowed Lane Davies to win a little stay this summer in Moscow. The show begins on the Russian television this month, before reaching the United States in 2003.

Bizarrozoom, heading showing off some curiosities

Bridget and Jerome Dobson decided to hire a young scenario writer in February 1986. Her name : Victoria Lane. She had the time to write six episodes (numbers 378, 387, 394, 399, 407 and 413) until the end of March 1986. Her best inspired idea : Gina's false burial and Kirk's heart attack when he surprises her in her bath. Victoria Lane accidentally dies in April 1986. That is why the Dobsons create a character with her name to do homage to her in August 1986 (episode 532), a beautiful actress, ex-girlfriend of Cruz's.
