Midland Heights is a typical, small and sleepy Midwestern college town full of typical small Midwestern college town folk: Lisa Rogers (Linda Hamilton) likes Burt the football hero (Lorenzo Lamas), but he suspects she’s also seeing Mark the frat rat (Bill Thornbury). She’s also flirting with Cal, her former high school teacher (Mark Pinter).
Then there’s Holly (Marilyn Jones), who wants to have a fling with Teddy (Daniel Zippi) until she discovers that her mother (Bibi Besch) is already having a fling with Teddy’s father (Stephen Manley).
Meanwhile, Ann the heiress (Doran Clark) and John the dropout (Jim Youngs) are seeing each other on the sly.
Fortunately, there’s a moral to all of this. As Lisa craftily tells Burt, “we have to trust each other. If we don’t, what do we have?”
The answer, of course, is a shabby TV series that seemed more like a daytime soap than a drama to suit a prime-time slot. Lack of an audience saw the series cancelled in less than two months.
Linda Grovenor, who played Holly in the first episode, left to join the actors who went on strike at the time. Marilyn Jones would assume the role of Holly for the rest of the show’s run.
