While this represents Moore and White’s first shared acting gig in decades, the ladies did appear on TV together in September 2008, as part of the Primetime Emmy Awards. Shortly before that, they took part in a NATAS event that marked White’s 60 years in the biz and assembled a larger bunch of the ‘MTM’ cast.
