    "Darren Star, creator of Sex and the City, Melrose Place and Beverly Hills, 90210, steps out of the bedroom and onto Wall Street. A new generation of upstarts rules the roost at Balmont Stevens, Inc. However, this boys' club shares space with some corporate types and together they must survive the world of high finance...and high-stakes living. Heading up the hotshot traders is Jack Kenderson, whose charm and good looks are matched only by his uncanny market instincts. Former Navy SEAL [Chris] McConnell will never escape his working-class, Staten Island roots, but can still play with the big boys. Salesman extraordinaire Freddie Sacker never misses an opportunity to offend anyone within earshot. Research analyst [Evan] Mitchell is a constant source of amusement simply because he is the master of his domain--yet completely over the hype of the job. On the corporate side of the fence, new Vice President of Sales, Catherine Miller, is a no-nonsense professional, whose natural beauty makes working in a testosterone-heavy environment even more challenging. Alexandra Brill, a Harvard-trained investment banker, also happens to be Jack's fiancée. Street-smart receptionist Donna Pasqua is determined to prove she's capable of much more than answering phones, despite her lack of an Ivy League education. Together, this incongruous group navigates the stormy waters of sexual, class and cultural politics while doing what they do best--making money and lots of it. After hours, these ultra-affluent twentysomethings roam Manhattan's exclusive clubs looking for the next big thrill or the next big payout. Welcome to life on The $treet."

    South Central was a serio-comic series about the struggles of a family residing in South Central Los Angeles. Joan Mosely, an independent-minded single mother, must find a way to make ends meet while still keeping a close eye on her teenage children, Andre and Tasha. In addition, she has taken in Deion, a five-year-old foster child with special needs: he was born addicted to crack and does not speak. Already reeling from the recent death of eldest son Marcus in a gang-related shooting, the Moselys are dealt another blow when Joan is laid off from her job at the school district. She is forced to take a minimum wage job at a local co-op. A critically acclaimed but extremely short-lived series, South Central is now perhaps best remembered as one of the earliest acting roles for Jennifer Lopez, who had a recurring role as Joan's co-worker at the co-op.

    The Heights was a rock and roll band made up of a group of ambitious, young, mostly blue-collar kids hoping to ride success out of their middle-class lives. The members of the group were Stan (guitar), who worked for his father, Mr. Mike, owner of the bar/pool hall where the group hung out; Dizzy (drums), a plumber's assistant; Rita (saxophone), a dispatcher for a beer distributor; Hope (guitar), whose wealthy family supported her while she played with the band; J.T. (guitar), the lead singer, an auto mechanic with a long-standing love/hate relationship with Hope; Lenny (keyboard), who worked at the Seven Seas restaurant; and Alex the newest member of the group, a sensitive poet/songwriter who worked in a grocery store. Alex, who was in love with Rita, also sang leads, and his presence caused friction with J.T., who didn't like anybody else singing lead. When Dizzy married his pregnant girlfriend, Jodi, a nurses' aide whose father was his boss, Lenny moved in with his former roommate, Stan. The series chronicled the ups and downs of the band members as well as their evolving relationships. At least one new song, filmed as a video montage, was performed each week. Ironically, the single version of the series theme, featuring Jamie Walters as lead singer, hit #1 on the Billboard charts in early November, one week before The Heights was canceled.moreless

    ""Dynasty For Teens", "Anti-Dawson's Creek" or "Anti-Freaks And Geeks" as Roger Kumble likes to describe it. This series had spunk, and fun on how wild teens of the late 90ties, talk, discuss on sex, and drugs. Warning: The guide contains major spoilers, for those who never seen the series, but you probably haven't seen it. Manchester Prep was a spin off of 1999's hit movie, Cruel Intentions. Manchester Prep was a prequel to the movie, set in Manchester, New York. Sebastian meets Annette, Cecile, and Kathryn for the first time. Unfortunately, the Manchester Prep never made it to air. It would of been a fun show to keep up with, as a person who seen the unaired episodes to it. It last episode "Disfunction Junction" really did leave a cliff hanger to what was going to happen next. Manchester Prep would of probably been on every critic's hate list (some on "Guilty Pleasure" list) BUT... This series was cancelled due to graphic scenes that parents found not suitable in the 8 PM time slot when a episode featured Cecile (Keri Lynn Pratt) orgasming on a horse, Which outraged someone at Fox. They wanted the episode to be "re-tooled" but it was doomed to death. Needless to say, the orgasm horse scene is in Cruel Intentions 2, the TV Movie that explains events before the feature movie (starring Ryan Philippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Reese Witherspoon). Three complete episodes were made, and most likely their are scripts written, but are unproduced. (If you have them please send it to us! Fans would love to know what happened AFTER "Disfunctin Junction".) Historically, FOX now has a growing tradition of canceling a show or two, before they make it to air. Keep in mind that atleast two episodes are ordered right after the pilot is picked up by a network at their upfront presentation. FOX pilots/series picked up but never aired: 1997- 1998 Season: **"Rewind" (comedy, starring Scott Baio) 1998 - 1999 Season: **"Hollyweird" (drama, starring Shaun Cassidy) 1999 - 2000 Season: **"Manchester Prep" (3 episodes made.) 2000 - 2001 Season: ** "Fling" (a.k.a.

    ULTRAMAN: TOWARDS THE FUTURE Japanese Release Title: ULTRAMAN GREAT (URUTORAMAN GUREETO)Show Type: Tokusatsu Science Fiction/Fantasy Produced by Tsuburaya Productions and The South Australian Film Corporation Distributed in the US by Sachs Family Entertainment and broadcast on Fox Network: First Telecast: January 4, 1992 Last Telecast: March 28, 1992 Color, Film/Video 13 Episodes

    Basic Plot: During a trip to Mars, astronauts Jack Shindo and Stanley Haggard witness a fight between two giants, a giant silver & red humanoid called Ultraman, and a giant sluglike tentacled creature called Gudis. During the battle, Stanley is killed by Gudis while escaping in the spacecraft (upon Jack's orders), but Ultraman is victorious. Although he destroys the Gudis, the alien creature evaporates into a green virus that rapidly streams towards Earth, thus beginning its invasion. Shindo, now stranded on Mars, stands face to face with the mysterious giant . . .

    Back on Earth, the Gudis virus infects various lifeforms, controlling them and turning them into giant monsters! The only ones equipped to deal with the Gudis threat is the Universal Multipurpose Agency (UMA), a squadron with high-tech weapons and vehicles at their disposal. Led by Colonel Arthur Grant, the UMA team is ready to protect the Earth from the ravaging monsters. But all questions are answered when Jack Shindo mysteriously returns to Earth and, because of his amazing knowledge of the Gudis, is asked by Grant to join UMA. Jean Echo is the only member of UMA who was an aquaintance of his (and a possible love interest). Jack provides UMA with all the knowledge they need to cope with the Gudis monsters, but unbeknownst to them or anyone else, Jack uses the Delta Plasma Pendant to transform into Ultraman! The silver superman has merged his lifeforce with that of the Earthman, and has decided to stay on Earth to aid UMA in protecting it from Gudis, and all other possible threats.

    Series Background

    The first show in the Japanese Ultraman series to be filmed in English, through the joint effort of Tsuburaya Prod. and the South Australian Film Corporation. This show was filmed in 1989 but didn't air in Japan or the US until late 1991 and ran several months through its first and final season. "Ultraman: Towards the Future" initially had a budget around $400,000 an episode--very substantial. This was intended by Tsuburaya Prod. to finance the usual Ultraman quota of about 50 episodes. However, all if not more of the budget was to be blown on the first 13 episodes, dooming "Ultraman: Towards the Future" early in production. (See bottom for additional notes.) Unlike the later "Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero" (or "Ultraman Powered," as it is called in Japan), "Ultraman Great" ("Ultraman: Towards the Future" in Japan) actually made it to national American television,* also spawning a line of merchandising that included a Dreamworks/Bandai line of action figures, vehicles and a playset, a Super Nintendo single-player fighting game, episode VHS tapes, and a comic book series from Nemesis Comics. "Ultraman Powered" on the other hand, despite being the first American-made Ultra series (Hollywood, USA), never made it in the US, rejected by networks such as Fox Kids and Kids WB. To date, "Ultraman Great" and "Ultraman Powered" are the only two English Ultra series risked by Tsuburaya Prod., which recovered from financial setbacks in 1996 with the radical introduction of a new, non-M78-based type of Ultraman, "Ultraman Tiga." Interesting to note about the "Ultraman" comic book series of 1993-1994, many ads were featured for the upcoming "Ultraman Powered" series and the comic made no distinction between the new series and the original "Ultraman Great" series on which it was supposed to be based. The Ultraman drawn in the comic, aside from looking more like a robot akin to "The Iron Giant," resembled more closely "Ultraman Powered." The two English series were very different, however. "Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero" was based on the original "Ultraman" (1966), using modified designs several original Ultraman monsters. "Ultraman: Towards the Future," on the other hand, was completely original and unrelated to the original "Ultraman." Ultraman Great doesn't even have his own version of the famous "Specium Ray."

    *Similar to the method used to produce the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "Ultraman: Towards the Future" was shot out of order. Dore Kraus (Jack Shindo) commented at a Kaiju Convention that this was very confusing, because the actors never really knew the whole story at any one time behind the scene they were acting. This and likely other factors contributed to mounting tensions between the "laid-back" Australian crew and the "uptight" Japanese crew. The final product was not really up to Tsuburaya standards--considerably a monumental waste of money. But Ultraman Great had no trouble fitting in with the other Ultramen and has since his Japanese broadcast retained his image and respectability. There are still Ultraman Great toys, particularly in Bandai's traditional vinyl line of Ultramen and monsters, still popular today.

    *Particularly considering the of the Ultraman franchise in Japan and most of Southeastern Asia, the final product of Tsuburaya's first attempt at Westernizing Ultraman was disappointing. The blame may most likely be laid on the Aussie's involved in its production, such as Supervising Producer Gus Howard, who earnestly believed the original "Ultraman" (1966) was "trash with a capital 'T,'" and therefore insisted on "repackaging the concept" for an unspecified (and never found) western audience. Series writer, Terry Larsen, merely adapted the story already evolved by Japanese crew members; in fact, Larsen supposedly had never heard of the Ultraman series before, which calls into question his selection as series writer. The basic disinterest of the Australian crew in emphasizing the action/fighting/brawling was what made this series with potential such a yawn.

    *"Power Rangers" ("Zyuranger," the first series of a long line of annual Tokusatsu, or special effects, series produced by Toei Studios to be purchased by Haim Saban for US distribution) found its success by not tampering with the action sequences but editing out the plot development elements, most portions of which were geared toward a Japanese cultural audience (and featured the Japanese actors out of costume). "Ultraman: Towards the Future" took the wrong route by dumbing down the fighting and amping up the drama. In a half-hour, fast-paced action show, however, such drama becomes very trivial.

    *A REALLY BIG ISSUE: Producer Gus Howard admits that Australia really "didn't have any special effects infrastructure." This was exemplified for the time period by "Ultraman: Towards the Future"'s supremely bad special effects, excepting the pyrotechnics. It wasn't the special effects themselves, however--it was how they were employed. For example: primitive computer effects such as scaling images were often used for aircraft/monster flight when simple trick photography would have been easier and more believable. There was a lot of money blown on various kinds of special effects, the most effective being high-speed film (for slowing shots down) and monstrous pyrotechnics. Other than that, the show looked worse than a home video. Some episodes looked better than others as a result of the different visual effects techniques employed.moreless
