Gabrielle Fitzpatrick on "Dragnet" (2003)

Gabrielle Fitzpatrick (Dulcea, MMPR: The Movie) played a major role on the short-lived 2003 version of the cop series "Dragnet," during it's first season. Fitzpatrick appeared in the third episode titled "Well Endowed," where she played a dual role. Fitzpatrick's character Whitney Lynde is found murdered in the first scene of the episode and the detectives soon discover that she was an aging actress whose real name was Eliza May Munson. When they discover she had a sister, they are surprised to see the two were twins. Fitzpatrick appears in the flesh as Maria Becker, Whitney's sister who has been taking care of her son practically since birth. Maria's highly religious lifestyle often clashed with her sister's and the two rarely spoke unless it involved visits with Whitney's son. Further investigation uncovered Whitney's affair with a high profile millionaire and the revelation that his vindictive wife may have set up Whitney to be murdered after her husband died. The detectives learn that the father of Whitney's son was the dead millionaire, who left the boy a hefty inheritance which put the boy's life in danger and led Whitney to send him to her sister.
