I remember this show. I was out and about for a stroll around my neighborhood in the Sunset district of San Francisco and made it a point to get home to watch the premiere episode in the fall of 1992.
This was an era when Aaron Spelling's teen and young adult dramas caught on like wildfire. Beverly Hills, 90210 was a smash hit, and Melrose Place debuted earlier in the year. 2000 Malibu Road and The Heights (all executive produced by Spelling) also debuted around the same time.
I don't remember whether the show was very good, but I was in my mid-20s and was game to try this new crop of young adult dramas. I don't know exactly how long the show lasted, but like a lot of new shows that don't catch on quickly, it was gone after probably a half-dozen episodes.
After the first couple of episodes, NBC promos foretold of Alexandra Wilson joining the show as the "sexy vixen"-type character of Caitlin, presumably to "spice up" the show and attract more viewers. (Reminds me of when "special guest star" Heather Locklear was added to Melrose Place the next year as Amanda Woodward, Allison's boss at D&D Advertising.) This was right after Alexandra portrayed the character of Sarah Brewer on Homefront, and Sarah's sudden death.
The opening theme was "Young Americans" by David Bowie.
