Sabrina Lloyd, left, starred in “Sports Night.” She has since stopped acting.

Q: I’ve been watching reruns of “Sports Night” and can’t help wondering where Sabrina Lloyd, who played Natalie to Joshua Malina’s Jeremy, is. Most everyone in the cast has resurfaced on a hit show at one time or another since the series ended — Malina in “Scandal,” Josh Charles in “The Good Wife,” Peter Krause in “Parenthood,” Felicity Huffman in “Desperate Housewives.” Where is Lloyd?

A: After “Sports Night,” Lloyd did more work in movies and on television, including the series “Ed” and “Numb3rs.” But she has mostly had a life beyond acting in recent years. In 2008, she noted on her blog (www.reddirtlattes.com), she was 38 and studying at Columbia University when her United Nations-worker boyfriend suggested they marry and move to Africa. They did both, living there for two years and adopting a daughter before moving to Rome. In March, she wrote that the family, now with a son, is moving back to Africa.

– mostly

Q: After watching “Hoosiers” the other night for about the 20th time, I marveled at what a versatile actor Gene Hackman is. Has he ever been in a musical?

A: The Oscar winner has worked with people famous for their musical skills, including Liza Minnelli (in 1975’s “Lucky Lady”) and Barbra Streisand (1981’s “All Night Long”). I was going to make a joke that Hackman’s starring in “I Never Sang for My Father” was a proper summary of his screen career — until I came across him performing “I Could Have Danced All Night” with other cast members in “The Birdcage,” the 1996 adaptation of “La Cage Aux Folles.”

Poor sendoff for ‘Killer Women’

Q: The ABC series “Killer Women” was promoted as eight episodes; however, ABC only aired the first six. How are fans supposed to be able to see the last two unaired episodes?

A: ABC shortened the series’ run when ratings proved disappointing. It also skipped at least one episode to have a final telecast that felt like a finale. I haven’t seen any scheduling of the remaining episodes, nor are they online.

More women in crime

Q: Are the “Police Women” series of Broward County, Dallas and Memphis coming back?

A: The series are no longer in production for TLC. The network’s new show “Women of Homicide,” though, follows three homicide detectives in Cincinnati and Atlanta.
