Melrose Place is an American primetime soap opera that ran between 1992 and 1999, created by Darren Star for the FOX network and executive produced by Aaron Spelling. A spinoff from Beverly Hills 90210, though not featuring any permanent cast members crossing over, Melrose Place is set in a small apartment courtyard complex in the West Hollywood district of Los Angeles, where several young individuals reside, each with their own dreams and drives. The show's popularity led to a rash of similar nighttime serials about sexy, powerful women, such as Models, Inc., Savannah, Pacific Palisades, and Central Park West, all of which were short-lived.
The show struggled in its first season with low ratings, like its predecessor, which also struggled in its first season. However, with the arrival of more interesting characters and over-the-top storylines, ratings increased. The show was cancelled after its seventh season.
