29 x 60 minute episodes

This spin-off to Melrose Place revolved around Amanda Woodward’s mother, Hillary Michaels (played by Linda Gray of Dallas fame), and her modelling agency – Models, Inc. – which she ran with her son, David.

Amanda’s employees included alcoholic Sarah Owens (Cassidy Rae) and bitchy Julie Dante (Kylie Travis).

Cameron Daddo played the agency’s Australian photographer, Brian Peterson.

Additions were made to the cast mid-season, including brash Afro-American model Cynthia Nichols (Garcelle Beauvais) and mysterious nightclub owner Adam Louder (James Wilder), who was attempting to get rid of his scheming ex-wife, Grayson (Emma Samms).

The combination of fashion, sex, murder, models, blackmail, bitchiness, Los Angeles and bad acting proved popular with prime-time soap audiences (particularly in Australia) but the series was critically panned and did not last beyond a single season of 29 episodes.
