Storyline

Launched in 1992 as a companion for "Beverly Hills, 90210," "Melrose Place" quickly became a giant television hit in its own right. Originally designed to be an authentic, grounded look at 20-something life in Los Angeles, the program soon became "90210"'s soapier, yet equally popular counterpart. The 'Unauthorized Melrose Place Story' highlights the remarkable behind-the-scenes moments that shaped the series including cast drama, Heather Locklear arriving to "save" the show, and the actors begging their writers for even wilder story lines to make them fan favorites.

Goofs

During the re creation of the Apartment complex explosion, a few key characters are missing from the scene. Dr. Peter Burns, Richard Hart (Jane's boyfriend/business partner), Brooke (Billy's new wife), and Mackenzie Hart (Richard Hart's jilted wife) were all present during the actual TV show explosion, however they are conspicuously absent from the TV movie version.

Quotes

Darren Star: Of course we'll have an attractive cast just like we do on 90210, but what's different here is that these characters are out on their own, some for the very first time there's no family to catch them when they fall and they only have each other.

Does what it says
3 January 2016 | by paranojaSee all my reviews

An "Unauthorized Melrose Place" story was never going to be overly exciting, as unlike the predecessor Beverly Hills 90210, there was never any major drama on the set that one could build a story around like the Shannen Doherty/Jennie Garth drama. So they end up focusing on non-issues like Laura Leighton not wanting to step on anyone's toes or Thomas Calabro's supposedly smug New York theater background.

It also only covers seasons one through three and they barely touch upon the fact that Amy Locane was dumped after the first 13 episodes (and shockingly, they don't milk her recent legal troubles).

So, it's a pretty calm movie that chugs along nicely. Nothing overly revealing and a few factual errors, but what can you expect from a made-for-TV movie by Lifetime?
