In March 2012 Melissa was featured on “Martha Stewart Living” for an entire episode of comedy, cooking and a solo musical segment to promote her CD, Lullabies & Wildflowers.
In 2006-2007 TV season, Melissa filmed a television pilot called M.O.N.Y. for NBC produced by Tom Fontana and directed by Spike Lee. She playing the Mayor’s wife (Bobby Cannavale). Melissa also starred in the network pilots The Fighting Fitzgeralds with Ed Burns and Brian Dennehy, Smog with Jon Favreau and Noah Emmerick (produced by Larry Charles), and was fired by Kelsey Grammar in her own NBC sitcom called Neurotic Tendencies (produced by Kelsey Grammar), which was created to tell the story of his odd-ball relationship with his (now former) wife Camille. The plot began when a young, funky, downtown actress met an older man when they both hailed the same taxi.
