Melrose Place Getting Updated, Too?


Variety says that as the new version of “90210” continues to post decent numbers, The CW and CBS Paramount Network TV are exploring the possibility of reviving “Melrose Place” as well.

“Melrose Place” was a spin-off of the original “Beverly Hills, 90210.” The two shows were paired on Fox’s Wednesday night schedule during the first two years of “Melrose Place” before the series became a Monday night staple.

“Melrose Place” ran on Fox from 1992-99 and turned into a hit show after Heather Locklear joined the cast as the scheming Amanda Woodward. Rob Estes joined “Melrose Place” later in the show’s run — and now stars as the father on the new “90210.”

The trade says the “Melrose” discussions are still in early stages, and no writers or producers are yet attached.
