Storyline

Stephanie Wells (Mariel Hemmingway) has come to Manhattan to be Editor-in-Chief for "Communique", a very trendy magazine (á la "Vanity Fair"). Just as soon, trouble ensues. There will be intrigues she can't even begin to fathom, that threaten not only her marriage to Mark Merrill (Tom Verica), a playwright, but also the fabric of her sanity. She's walked into a vipers' nest. And she will never find the way out. Written by Miguel Cane <stepford@yahoo.com>

Dynasty of the 90s

Central Park West could have been (and was probably planned as) the one and only true heir of DYNASTY, with condign successors, especially for Fallon and Krystle, including a revived lily-pond-catfight now in a more public place -- a restaurant fountain. The leading ladies were lovely, especially (in that order) Lauren, Raquel, Mädchen, and Mariel. What was missing were hunks -- one Tom Verica is not enough -- and most of all a condign successor for Alexis,'cos there's only one Joan Collins.

I don't want to be a bore, but IMDb forces me to fulfill their minimum of ten lines. Wait -- ten lines of something would have been something causing Carrie Fairchild's interest. Ten lines would have been a breakthrough for Mark Merrill's writers' block. Ten lines would have been -- wait, the minimum is done!

May I add a line? Please, CBS, release this stepchild of yours.
