In 1962, she was cast as Lucille Ball's daughter, Chris Carmichael, on CBS's The Lucy Show. Moore remained a regular on The Lucy Show through the end of the 1964-65 season, after which the premise of the show was retooled and most of the supporting cast was written out. Moore also appeared nine times on ABC's The Donna Reed Show,[1] five of which as Angie Quinn, the girlfriend of series character Jeff Stone (Paul Petersen).

In 1961-62, she portrayed the part of Gillian Favor in two episodes of Rawhide. Moore also starred in a television pilot called Time Out For Ginger, which aired on CBS on September 18, 1962. However, it didn't sell.[2]
