Melrose Place - This Is The Place: Paramount Announces November Release Of 1st Season!

Posted by David Lambert
For a year-and-a-half, we've known it was coming. When Paramount teased us earlier this year with indications that it was coming, TVShowsOnDVD began asking them on a pretty-much weekly basis what the street date was. We last asked the studio about this last Monday (the 17th), and were told that there still wasn't a US date for the show. But now, Paramount Home Entertainment has revealed:

Melrose Place -
The Complete 1st Season


Marcia Cross (Desperate Housewives), Doug Savant (Desperate Housewives), Courtney Thorne-Smith (According To Jim), Daphne Zuniga (Beautiful People), Grant Show (Beautiful People), Andrew Shue (2007 film Gracie), Thomas Calabro (upcoming 2006 film Cake), Amy Locane (Throttle), Josie Bissett (TV film I Do, They Don't) and Vanessa Williams (upcoming 2006 TV film Contradictions of the Heart) are all in the cast right from the start of the first season of this classic primetime soap, which was a Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off.

Two very popular and memorable characters from the show, Heather Locklear's "Amanda" and Laura Leighton's "Sydney," show up in the 1st season of Melrose Place, but not until the 21st and 19th episodes, respectively. Also, some of the 90210 cast show up in the first few episodes, in a cross-over with the series they are spinning off: look for Jennie Garth ("Kelly"), Brian Austin Green ("David"), Ian Ziering ("Steve") and Tori Spelling ("Donna")! you'll also spot a number of other celebrities in these 32 episodes (was it really that many? wow!), such as Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Nestor Carbonell (The Tick), Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Liz Sheridan (ALF; Seinfeld), Rae Dawn Chong (Commando), Ben Stein (Win Ben Stein's Money), Rob Estes (Suddenly Susan; I Do, They Don't), Michelle Johnson (Blame It On Rio), and Vanessa Angel (TV's Weird Science).

Melrose Place - The Complete 1st Season will be an 8-DVD set that runs 25 hours and 10 minutes. Please stand by for extras (if any) and box art! Beverly Hills, 90210 - The Complete 1st Season has been announced for the same release date of November 7th, and we've heard that the long-awaited Twin Peaks - Season 2 will hit US shores a couple of weeks after that. Stay tuned!
