Storyline

Based on the novel and 1949 film of the same name, this prime-time soap detailed the lives of haves and have-nots in the sleepy Southern hamlet Truro, Florida. The haves live in huge mansions on Flamingo Road, while the rest of the characters did anything (blackmail, murder, voodoo) to obtain that address as well. Written by Mark Faulkner <mtfalknr@cc.memphis.edu>

Best show on TV at that time era
13 October 2015 | by keynthwestSee all my reviews

Used to wait all week for that show; loved Morgan Fairchild the most. This was my 1st introduction to Mark Harmon, and would guess that is where he got his start. Just as suave then as he is now! Always wondered what happened to her after it went off the air. During that time period i had never been to Florida or the deep South, now i have been there many times. It was because of my immersion in Flamingo Road that i developed a burning desire to see the South for myself. Sure wish it was available to purchase, so I could watch it again from beginning to end! Probably where i got my email address idea from (live in the NW (Camas, WA) but wish i was in Key West FL!))
