Simon Berrenger is the ruthless, head of the high-class store that bore his name. His two sons are both working for him: Paul, the president of Berrenger's, who is trapped in a loveless marriage to Gloria and is having an affair with Shane Bradley, the chain's merchandise V.P. and Billy, who is in charge of P.R. and is battling addictions to both alcohol and gambling. Simon's daughter, Barbara, is a divorcee who had spent her entire life trying to win her father's love and approval. Barbara's daughter Melody is married to ambitious Todd Hughes, who ran the only Berrenger's branch store.Written by
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.
