Deep in the heart of the 20th Century Fox lot, “Moonlighting” executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron’s merry band is hard at work on a painstakingly authentic parody of the immortal film classic, “Casablanca.” But word from the set indicates that series stars Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis are not playing the Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart roles; those are falling to series regulars Agnes Dipesto (played by Alyce Beasley) and Herbert Viola (Curtis Armstrong). Also, the show--likely targeting the sweeps period in February--is a spoof on colorization, complete with on-and-off color and verbal jabs at cable TV mogul Ted Turner.
