This series which was initially a television movie about modelling. The character of Racine, the modelling agent, is there. As are the two young models, Taryn Blake, who has been modelling since she could walk and has a svengali for a mother,Julia, who sees her more as a meal ticket than as a daughter, and knows that the day is coming near when all of her daughters payments will go directly to her, and Laurie Caswell, the innocent, who doesn't really want to do it but is being pestered by Racine who sees her as the next hot commodity. Also thrown into the mix are Laurie's parents Dinah and Michael who are at odds over Laurie's modelling. Also added is Harper World Wide, whose perfume company uses Racine's models for their ads. Wesley Harper, who is in charge of that division, is constantly having his head bitten off by his father, Grant, who treats his daughter, Blair quite reciprocally.

What an excellent show!!!!!!!!
9 October 2006 | by itsmrbigtoyouSee all my reviews

In the tradition of ''Dallas'', ''Knots Landing'', ''Dynasty'' and ''Dynasty II: The Colby's'', comes ''Paper Dolls''. A lively Mini-series set in the hustle of ''Big Apple City'' New York. The show focuses mainly on the Manhattan part of the city and tells the story of the lives of Racine and Grayson, two very powerful executives in a modelings agency. The show lasted for only one season and is now considered by many viewers as a mini-series. The show star's: Lloyd Bridges from 1980's ''Airplane'', Jennifer Warren, Brenda Vaccaro from ''Airport '77'' and ''Supergirl'', Mimi Rogers from ''The Austin Power's Movie's'', Dack Rambo from TV's ''Dallas'', Terry Farrell, daughter of TV's ''M#A#S#H's'' Mike Farrell, Richard Beymer and introducing Nicollette Sheridan from TV's ''Knots Landing'' and ''Desperate Housewive's''. The series began with a three-hour long pilot movie in 1982 with some of the original cast members from this spin-away series, plus with ''Dynasty's'' very own Alexis Carrington: Joan Collins. This series is sure to please all, if you can find it, enjoy it. Let's hope for a DVD release someday soon. Apparently, the series was axed because of rising expense cost's. At the time of it's beginning, it was one of the most expensive series to produce at the time.
