Veronica Hamel makes the first of several 1980s breaks from her Hill Street Blues image in the made-for-TV Sessions. Hamel plays Leigh Churchill, the sort of high-cost, high-class call girl who seemingly exists only on screen. As of late, Leigh's professional calls have been fewer and farther between, an occupational hazard in a business where youth is a vital success factor. Leigh's professional eclipse is mirrored by several crises in her personal life, involving her live-in boyfriend, her judgmental father, and her sympathetic kid sister. Jeffrey DeMunn co-stars as a good-hearted doctor who offers to take Leigh away from "all this." Originally aired September 26, 1983.
