About

From Wikipedia:

Melrose Place is an American television primetime soap opera that aired on Fox in the United States from July 8, 1992, to May 24, 1999 for seven seasons. The show was created by Darren Star for Fox network and executive produced by Aaron Spelling for Spelling Television. It is the second series in the Beverly Hills, 90210 franchise.

The series won the People's Choice Award in 1993 for 'Favorite Television Series'.

The show is set in a small apartment courtyard complex in the West Hollywood district of Los Angeles, where several young individuals reside, each with their own dreams and drives. The original plan for the show was to have minor stories conclude in every episode, but when that formula proved unpopular, the writers started developing long-term storylines to evolve during the season.

The series debuted on July 8, 1992 and was an instant hit, debuting at #19 on the Nielsen ratings with a 10.3/19 share. The series finale was watched by 10.38 million viewers.

Filming for the series took place at a studio in Santa Clarita, California. The show had many cast changes during the run, and Thomas Calabro was the only original cast member to remain on the series throughout its entire run.

Heather Locklear was nominated for four Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama for her role as Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place, in 1993, 1994, 1995, and 1996. Laura Leighton was nominated in 1995 for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series.
