2000 Malibu Road

Show Summary

This short lived but popular night time soap dealt with four roommates sharing a beach house in exclusive Malibu, California. Jade O'Keffe owned the house. She was a high priced prostitute who wanted to leave the business. In order to do that she took in roommates to help her pay for the house. Into the fold came Perry Quinn, a criminal lawyer and sisters Joy and Lindsay Rule. Lindsay had aspirations of being an actress and Joy acted as her manager/agent. The series only ran for four weeks but combined six episodes into the short run. Storylines revolved around Jade's sordid past which came to light when she was arrested for murder. Her rich mother Camilla came to town, along with her stepfather Porter. Jade began an affair with the detective originally investigating her. A plot to kill Jade by her abusive stepfather was revealed. Meanwhile, Perry was working doubly hard trying to prove Jade's innocence while also helping old friend Roger who was accused of rape. In the weeks that followed, it was revealed that Roger really was the rapist and in a dramatic ending scene was about to attack Perry. Lindsay was falling in love with Eric Adler, an attractive Production Assistant whose parents were in the movie business. Her sister Joy hated the fact that Lindsay wasn't using her advisement and continually cut her out of business deals. Joy continued to manipulate and use Lindsay to keep herself in the fold. The show was immensely popular during its run, beginning and ending at #2 in the Nielson ratings. However, television politics as they are seem to be the reason the show got the axe so quickly. =================== Production Companies * Aaron Spelling Productions Inc ==================== Release dates: USA -- 23 August 1992 Germany -- 15 January 1994 ==================== Filming Locations: *Malibu, California, US ==================== Runtime: 60 min (6 episodes) Country: USA Language: English Color: Color ======================== CREW: Directed by Joel Schumacher Writing credits (in alphabetical order) Terry Louise Fisher creator Produced by Darren Frankel .... producer Aaron Spelling .... executive producer E.

  • No Melrose Place but a lot of potential

    I watched this several years ago as a two part mini-series and it was an enjoyable trashfest that had the distinction of being based solely around four women who were neither friends nor enemies but lived together and came from totally different backgrounds.

    It was two years a ahead of its time. Zanier than Melrose before that show even reached its camp seasons and Joy's impotence inducing voodoo and getting struck by lightning didn't exactly sit well when juxtaposed with Perry getting raped in a stairwell.

    Lisa Hartman was less than convincing (and dare I say it, perhaps a little old) to be playing the daughter of a rich family who rebelled by getting into high class prostitution. But the rest of the cast was stellar. Jennifer Beals was neurotic as a lawyer being stalked by her boyfriend's ex and Tuesday Knight chewed up the scenery with relish.

  • Strictly popcorn viewing

    This show only ran for a few weeks, but I was hooked. I tuned in mainly because of the cast. I was a huge Lisa Hartman fan when she was on Knots Landing and she was joined by Jennifer Beals and Drew Barrymore. I also knew Scott Bryce, Brian Bloom and Michael T. Weiss from their daytime work and Tuesday Knight from Nightmare ON Elm Street 4. The writing wasn't great and neither particularly was the acting, yet I was strangely addicted to it. Of course it had to end on a cliffhanger so we never got to find out what happened next.moreless
