Melrose Place - The Complete First Season 8-Disc Set DVD Description
Creator Darren Star and executive producer Aaron Spelling followed up on the massive success of their 1990s teen drama BEVERLY HILLS 90210 with a spinoff series that went on to match its parent show's popularity (and made its Monday night timeslot a night of must-see TV). A grownup, racier version of 90210, MELROSE PLACE harkened back to the days of classic nighttime soaps like DYNASTY and DALLAS while adding a decidedly younger, hipper edge with amped-up levels of sex, betrayal, murder, and a multiple personality or two. The backstabbing action centered around a group of fashionable, affluent twentysomethings living in a stylish apartment complex on the titular L.A. strip: vulnerable ad exec Alison Parker (Courtney Thorne-Smith); her roommate/love interest, Billy Campbell (Andrew Shue); the increasingly conniving doctor Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro); his sweetly innocent wife, Jane (Josie Bissett); her trashy stripper sister, Sydney (Laura Leighton); nice guy Jake Hanson (Grant Show); openly gay Matt Fielding (Doug Savant); tough New York transplant Jo Reynolds (Daphne Zuniga); the utterly psychotic Kimberly Shaw (Marcia Cross); and, of course, one of the best villainous vixens in TV history, Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear). The ultimate guilty pleasure, MELROSE PLACE's debut season is presented in its entirety with this collection of 32 episodes.
