For those of you who can't wait to see if The CW's upcoming remake of 90210 will prove a hit or a miss next season, a special edition box set of the first three seasons (1990-93) and Season 4 of the original Fox teen soap goes on sale today!
Beverly Hills, 90210's late executive producer Aaron Spelling was a notoriously HUGE fan of daytime soap operas and didn't look down his nose on the genre like many primetime and movie producers do. In fact he even produced his own daytime sudser, Sunset Beach.
Spelling realized daytime soaps are the best training ground ever for an actor and to his credit employed many a daytime grad during his stellar career, not to mention daytime writers like Bob Guza and Charles Pratt. In the first three seasons of Beverly Hills, 90210 alone there was Luke Perry (Loving, Another World), Ian Ziering (The Doctors, Guiding Light) and Gabrielle Carteris (Another World) all in contract roles, along with Jed Allan (Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, Santa Barbara) and Josh Taylor (Days of Our Lives) playing recurring dads to the Peach Pit gang.
