Alternate Versions

The pilot episode was altered at the request of Darren Star's former boss Aaron Spelling. Originally the character of Marcy, played by Lindsay Sloane, was a red-headed bulemic who got her job because her uncle was a studio executive. Spelling took offense and thought that it was a reference to his daughter Tori Spelling who was a star on "Beverly Hills, 90210" a series created by Darren Star and produced by Aaron Spelling. Before the pilot aired Star took out all references to how Marcy got her job, a scene in which Marcy threw up in a limo and even went as far as to digitally alter her hair so that it was brown and not red. Joely Fisher, who played producer Hope Lustig, was originally credited in the opening titles but was removed after the first episode when she decided to leave the show to work on "Normal, Ohio" a sitcom which was canceled. She was billed in four other episodes of "Grosse Pointe" as a Special Guest Star. See more »

Great show, shame it didn't last longer
19 March 2003 | by icehole4See all my reviews

Pretentiously angst-ridden teenager shows have always taken themselves way too seriously - and that leaves them open to a parody. Grosse Point delivered such a masterful send-up of life on and off one of these TV shows. The characters were well-crafted, and played by people who were very talented. They were based on real people in teen angst shows. Hunter Fallow, the kleptomaniac prima donna was loosely based on Shannon Daughtery; Quinton King, the sex addict was loosely based on Jason Priestly; Courtney Scott, the clueless ditzy blonde was loosely based on Courtney Thorne-Smith. Funniest of them all was Dave the stand-in, who had to take on the most stupidest of jobs for pay (such as being in the Michigan J. Frog costume for a party in one episode.)

It lasted too short a time to really get a good following. I'm sure that if WB had treated it like NBC treated Cheers (in Cheers' first season, it was the lowest rated show in its time slot) Grosse Pointe would still be around today.
