Storyline

Stephanie Wells has come to Manhattan to be Editor-in-Chief for "Communique", a very trendy magazine (á la "Vanity Fair"). Just as soon, trouble ensues. There will be intrigues she can't even begin to fathom, that threaten not only her marriage to Mark Merrill, a playwright, but also the very fabric of her sanity. Poor Stephanie! She's walked into a vipers' nest. And she will never find the way out. Written by Miguel Cane <stepford@yahoo.com>

It is one of the unsung shows from the 1990's.
29 June 2004 | by (Huber Heights, OH) – See all my reviews

Central Park West had the potential to be the next show for the Gen X-ers. Unfortunately, it didn't do very well in the Neilsen ratings. I did have the chance to tape the show while it was on. My favorite episodes are the first three episodes of the show. One reason was because Kim Raver, who later appeared in Third Watch, played Deanne Landers. She was the one who went out with Gil, played by Justin Lazard, and suing him for losing all of her money. She did a great job playing that character. Madchen Amick knew how to play the witch from hell. Tom Verica, who later appeared in American Dreams, played Mark Wells. He was the struggling playwright. Mariel Hemingway played his wife on the show. John Barrowman was the district attorney. Lauren Hutton was married to Alan Rush, played by Ron Leibman, on the show.

The show lost focus when they tried to revamp it by bringing Raquel Welch and Gerald McCraney on the show. It still had the lower ratings like it did when it appeared in the fall of 1995. I do believe it was a great idea that Darren Star came up with at a time when Melrose Place was very popular. Though, it failed. Well, better luck next time.
