Storyline

Short-lived prime time soap opera set in a New York department store run by the Berrenger family. Filled with several well known names, the plot premise of a department store did not attract viewers despite the show having the same creator as Dallas (David Jacobs). Full of incomprehensible plot twists, the show was soon cancelled. Written by mw_uk

If only the show had centered on Anita!
10 September 2007 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

Too bad this show didn't give Anita Morris more to do. In fact, if the show had centered on her character, Babs, and made her sort of a kinder and sexier version of Alexis Carrington, it might have been a whole lot more intriguing, instead of the less interesting triangle between Yvette Mimeux, Ben Murphy, and Andrea Marcovicci. The petty machinations of Claudia Christian and her husband Art Hindle were amusing and could have been played for more comedy. I was a big fan of all the nighttime soaps and Anita Morris as well. She came along too late, though. If she'd had the breaks that similar performers like Gwen Verdon had, she'd have been a huge star on Broadway with composers and show backers fighting to create vehicles for her. I would love it if the dozen or so episodes of "Berrenger's" were released on DVD, but that's not likely to happen.
