In the 1990s, there was no bigger prime time soap than “Melrose Place” and now Lifetime has chosen it for the subject for its fourth ‘unauthorized’ tell-all film.
Starting life in 1992 as a more adult-centric spin-off of the popular teen soap “Beverly Hills 90210,” ‘Melrose’ became a smash in its own right as the Aaron Spelling series explored the lives of twenty somethings in Los Angeles over the course of seven seasons and over two hundred episodes.
Courtney Thorne-Smith, Andrew Shue, Grant Show, Doug Savant, Marcia Cross, Daphne Zuniga, Laura Leighton, Jack Wagner, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bissett, Rob Estes, Brooke Langton, Jamie Luner, Alyssa Milano, Lisa Rinna, Vanessa Williams, Kelly Rutherford and Heather Locklear starred.
Michael Larkin and Howard Braunstein will executive produce, Dana Schmalenberg is penning and Mark Griffiths is directing. A premiere date has not yet been determined.
“The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story” follows in the wake of three tell-all telemovies by the network including the already aired “Saved by the Bell” film and the in the works movies about “Full House” and “Beverly Hills 90210”.
