We have just been able to obtain some information on more upcoming DVD releases from Paramount Home Entertainment. On November 7, the studio will begin to release season sets of the hit shows Beverly Hills 90210 and its spin-off, Melrose Place.
One of the definitive, landmark shows of the 1990s, “Beverly Hills 90210” quickly became an important fixture on the Fox Network and in the popular discourse of adolescents and young adults. The first season’s main characters, Dylan, Kelly, Donna, Steve, David, Andrea and twins Brandon and Brenda all attended West Beverly Hills High School. Brandon and Brenda Walsh and their parents, transplants from Minneapolis were the stable nuclear family with strong values; their home was a safe haven for the whole gang and the center of much of the drama. The show dealt with a steady stream of love triangles and other romantic entanglements and occasionally touched on more serious issues as well. Coming as a 6-disc DVD set the release will contain the complete first season of the show running voer 17 hours.
A nighttime soap opera about the lives, careers, trials and tribulations of a group of young people living in an apartment building in the trendy neighborhood of “Melrose Place.” The show was a spin off of “Beverly Hills 90210” and starred Heather Locklear as the scheming Amanda Woodward, head of her own advertising agency and owner of the apartment building. This release will also contain the entire first season of the show on 8 discs, running over 25 hours in length.
