Storyline

Stephanie Wells (Mariel Hemmingway) 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 (Tom Verica), a playwright, but also the fabric of her sanity. She's walked into a vipers' nest. And she will never find the way out. Written by Miguel Cane <stepford@yahoo.com>

Sexy, sultry, bitchy...but it failed in the ratings.
7 January 2005 | by sharbaug-1See all my reviews

I was a big fan of "Central Park West" and I was hoping it would go down in infamy with other great 90's shows like 90210 and Melrose Place, but instead it's one of those virtually-forgotten cult favorites like Models, Inc. I loved how this show tried to be so ambitious and over the top, sultry, sexy and bitchy. It was like the producers were trying to revamp "Dallas" for the 90's. Too bad it failed. Not once but twice. Even once it was reintroduced as "CPW" and it failed again. Michael Michele as Nikki Sheridan was my favorite character. At least she went on to star in successful shows like "ER". Even the star power of Mariel Hemingway, Lauren Hutton, and Raquel Welch couldn't revive this show. Too bad. It had so much potential and so many pretty faces.
