After several supporting roles through the rest of the '70s and the '80s, in 1989 Newman co-starred with Suzanne Pleshette on the TV drama "Nightingales," which lasted a season. In his later career, Newman made guest appearances on the TV hits such as the mystery series "Murder, She Wrote," the cop drama "NYPD Blue," and the primetime soap "The O.C.."
