In a world of glamour, temptation, deals and deception, three young women will struggle to realize their dreams. Hollywood, the ultimate fantasy, where success and ambition are everything, and only the strong survive. Neely O'Hara: a triple threat, singer/dancer/actress, she'll let nothing stand in her way. Anne Welles: she left her home in the Midwest to become a player behind the scenes. Jennifer North: born into a business she hates, she won't be able to resist it's lure. Helen Lawson: Jennifer's cynical mother, a star who's seen it all and keeps on playing. Their lives, their careers, their men. Young, beautiful, ambitious, searching for ultimate fulfillment in a world, where friendship may be the only way to survive.Written by
This syndicated late-night soap opera was loosely based on Jacqueline Sussan's best-selling novel, and the 1967 cult/camp classic film of the same name. The steamy soap was test marketed in only 13 cities, airing nightly from Monday to Friday. See more »
A fascinating soap opera loosely based on Jacqueline Susann's novel and updated for the 1990's.
This syndicated soap (which tried to push the current boundaries for nudity on television, especially when it comes to males) was test-marketed for 13 weeks in selected cities, including Boston and Atlanta. The combining of the original plotline with 90's sensibilities, along with warping a few relationships (Helen Lawson, who in the movie and novel was a huge Broadway star for whom Jennifer North appeared as a showgirl is now Jennifer's mother and a movie star!) New World basically cancelled the project before it was aired, but those original 13 weeks were adult soap opera at it's most interesting. Of special note is that I believe this soap was the first portrayal of a functioning and healthy gay relationship between two men. Ahead of it's time, I hope this show doesn't disappear into oblivion.
