Grosse Point

One-Season TV Shows

The WB

This little-known WB satirical soap must have been pretty cathartic for Darren Star, who based the series around his experiences producing Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place. Grosse Pointe took place on the set of a fictional teen series of the same name and followed the behind-the-scenes drama, which lead to Beverly Hills, 90210 producer Aaron Spelling calling WB execs complaining that one of the lead characters was obviously a thinly-veiled parody of his daughter, Tori Spelling. Darren brought in real-life celebs like Sarah Michelle Gellar to play fictionalized versions of themselves and used several actors from the series he was parodying in recurring roles, but it couldn’t combat the series’s position in the Friday Night Death Slot.
