Fictional drama about actors rebooting a global-hit TV show that they had starred in 29 years ago for 10 years. However, that hit show was real, and the actors from it are playing versions of themselves here. That hit was Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990)
Originally based around the lives of a group of high school students living in the wealthy Beverly Hills neighborhood, then later moving on to their college days as they got older. The kids become friends and enemies, fall in and out of love, and go through an endless series of crises as this small group somehow becomes personally involved in every newsworthy social issue from alcoholism to South African apartheid to pregnancy to AIDS.Written by

Despite being a soap opera, and with it the need to couple and uncouple as many people as possible, an enduring plot thread was how Donna Martin stayed a virgin for years after all of her friends had all hooked up with each other. The reason was not to present a positive view of abstinence or anything like that, but because the executive producer of the show was Aaron Spelling, and Donna Martin was played by his daughter, Tori Spelling. He didn't want to see his daughter having sex, even pretend sex. Of course, when Donna finally did copulate with David Silver, it was event television. See more »

During the original run and earlier syndication airings, the show featured a lot of music from up to the time the episode takes place. However, due to issues with rights regarding the songs, all DVD and Hulu versions change the majority of the original soundtrack with generic replacements. There are also episodes with scenes edited out that would mention certain songs or music artists. It is not known if there will ever be a future release that retains the original music with unedited episodes. See more »
New wave prime time soap of the 90's that was a major hit.
This series aimed at teenagers and young adults was a major hit during the 90's. Leading the pack was the turmoil-ridden saga of rich kids at West Beverly Hills High School who all faced the common problems of love, pregnancies, drugs and family crises subjects that are somewhat more common to youth and young adults. The best stories centered on the Walsh family, newly arrived in town, in particular fraternal twins Brandon (Jason Priestly) and Brenda (Shannen Doherty). The gang then included friends Kelly (Jennie Garth), Steve (Ian Ziering), Andrea (Gabrielle Carteris), Donna (Tori Spelling), David (Brian Austin Green) and moody Dylan (Luke Perry). Later other characters came on like Tiffani-Amber Thiessen while others had left. In the final season of the show most of the original cast had left the cast saw many changes during the ten year run. Most of the stars became major celebrities due to the success of the show.
