"90210" & "Melrose Place" Out On DVD
Late Aaron Spelling's signature dramas "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Melrose Place" that helped rejuvenate his production business in the early 90s and put FOX, the fourth broadcast network in the US , on the map have finally been released on DVD.
Pop culture phenomenona in their hey day, the prime-time soap operas satisified the hunger for teen camp long before "The O.C." and "Lagina Beach" came along, establishing a new genre in scripted television.
Tens of millions of viewers across the world watched as twins Brandon and Brenda Walsh from Minnesota struggled to adjust to rich brats of West Beverly High. And then they indulged in guilty pleasures of seeing Heather Locklear's bitchy vixen ad exec Amanda boss around denizens of a sexually-charged apartment complex in Los Angeles while sporting the shortest skirts on television and snapping cutthroat comeback lines.
To celebrate, the incomplete cast of both shows (Shannen Doherty, Luke Perry and Heather Locklear were absent) got together for a special DVD release event in Hollywood last Friday. Here are some of the images from the event.
