This is an ORIGINAL 7" x 9" NBC Network Press Photo. It has press info stamped on the back. It features the cast of the SUSAN HARRIS (Golden Girls, Soap) spin-off series from EMPTY NEST, the 1991 comedy series:


Nurses is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from 1991 to 1994, developed and produced by Susan Harris as a spin-off of Empty Nest (which, in turn, was a spin-off of The Golden Girls).

The show aired on Channel 4 in the UK. The show revolved around a group of nurses working at the same Miami hospital as Empty Nest's Dr. Harry Weston. Initially, the main characters were strong-willed nurse Annie Roland (Arnetia Walker), sarcastic nurse Sandy Miller (Stephanie Hodge), dim-witted nurse Julie Milbury (Mary Jo Keenen) and Latina nurse Gina Cuevas (Ada Maris) who frequently reminisced about her homeland, the fictional San Peqeuno. Also in the cast were arrogant Dr. Hank Kaplan (Kip Gilman), wise-cracking orderly Paco Ortiz (Carlos Lacamara) and flaky nurse Greg Vincent (Jeff Altman). In addition, Florence Stanley had a recurring role during the first season as Dr. Riskin.

Changes were made, however, after the first season. In an effort to boost ratings, David Rasche joined the cast in the second season as Jack Trenton, a slimy white-collar criminal forced to perform community service at the hospital, and in the final season Loni Anderson joined the cast as new hospital administrator Casey McAfee. Other changes included the addition of Markus Flanagan as Luke Fitzgerald for the second season only, the changing of the show's theme song in seasons two and three, having nurse Gina and Dr. Hank Kaplan get married (Gina being pregnant with Dr. Hank's child) and, oddly, having nurse Gina's extremely thick Spanish accent completely disappear. Nurse Greg Vincent was also written off after season one. In the show's final season, nurse Sandy was gone, and the show's focus moved increasingly from the nurses to Casey McAfee's adjustments in running the hospital under a new HMO, and the antics of Jack Trenton and his sidekick Paco the orderly.

The entire cast included:

Arnetia Walker ... Nurse Annie Roland (68 episodes, 1991-1994)
Mary Jo Keenen ... Nurse Julie Milbury (68 episodes, 1991-1994)
Ada Maris ... Gina Cuevas (68 episodes, 1991-1994)
Kip Gilman ... Dr. Hank Kaplan (68 episodes, 1991-1994)
Carlos Lacamara ... Paco Ortiz (68 episodes, 1991-1994)
Stephanie Hodge ... Nurse Sandy Miller (46 episodes, 1991-1993)
David Rasche ... Jack Trenton (46 episodes, 1992-1994)
Markus Flanagan ... Luke Fitzgerald (24 episodes, 1992-1993)
Loni Anderson ... Casey MacAfee (22 episodes, 1993-1994)
Jeff Altman ... Greg Vincent (22 episodes, 1991-1992)

MORE INFO ON JEFF ALTMAN: Jeff Altman (born August 13, 1951) is an American stand-up comedian and actor who has appeared as a guest on Late Show with David Letterman 41 times. In a recent appearance (June 19, 2014), Altman played a card trick where, after Letterman displayed much doubt in the authenticity of the trick, he isolated and found the card that Letterman picked and signed. Altman mesmerized contemporaries like David Letterman and Jerry Seinfeld, and inspired future comedians like Judd Apatow.

Altman has also had numerous acting roles in movies and television such as Dr. Gene Splicer in Tiny Toon Adventures, Professor Dweeb in Slimer and The Real Ghostbusters, Clint Mullet on Mork and Mindy, and is perhaps best known for his recurring role as Hughie Hogg, the nephew of Jefferson Davis Hogg, on The Dukes of Hazzard.

Altman was a TV cast member in the 1977 Starland Vocal Band Show, and later appeared as sleazy record promoter Lennie Richfield in the movie American Hot Wax in 1978. Altman also had a starring role as the host of the short-lived NBC variety show Pink Lady and Jeff in 1980, which TV Guide has ranked #35 on its "50 Worst TV Shows of All Time" list. Later in the decade, he became the in-house comedian of Solid Gold, where his characters included Al Punker, fast-talking proprietor of "Al Punker's Music Barn," the "music vampire Count Downula," and the ex-boxer Leonard Moon, the last of whom would state "I don't have the brains of a ice cube" and claim, "I am the Solid Gold music critic. Tonight, my subject is music."

Altman has directed many sitcoms, and in the mid-1980s he was the spokesman for Arby's restaurants. He also has been the (uncredited) host of the defensive driving course available through Blockbuster Video.

In the 1990s, Altman was on the NBC series Nurses during its first season (1991–1992). He was written out as the show was re-worked for its second season.

A regular feature of his stand-up act has typically included a comical impression of his father, and he continued to find his Nixon impression humorous well into the 1980s.
