    NBC (ended 1991)
    This series was based on the hit 1986 movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, starring Matthew Broderick. However, the series wasn't treated as a continuation of the film. In fact, the movie was referenced in the first episode when Ferris implied that he wasn't too thrilled with the choice of Broderick to portray him. Ferris Bueller hit the airwaves on NBC at the same time FOX's Parker Lewis Can't Lose did. The two series had incredible similarities, and episode titles like 'Ferris Bueller Can't Win' referenced this rivalry. But in the end, Ferris Bueller lost the battle and was cancelled after one season.moreless

    "We have discovered a deeper stage of sleep that allows us to travel into your dreams. As you descend, focus on my voice... We will be with you in your dreams..." Sleepwalkers was a sci-fi mystery show that aired as part of NBC's Thrillogy (along with Profiler and The Pretender) in the fall of 1997. The show revolved around Dr. Nathan Bradford (Bruce Greenwood) who was the head of the team that had developed a technology to enter the dreams of psychiatric patients to discover what their true problems were. He also used the machines to enter the unconscious mind of his wife, Gail Bradford (Kathrin Nicholson) who was in a coma. The other members of the team were Kate Russell (Naomi Watts), the scholar of the group, with a vast knowledge of mythology and archetypes from many religions and Vincent Konefke (Abraham Benrubi) who was the technical guy who ran the machines but never dreamwalked himself, and Steve Turner (Michael Watson). In the first episode Ben Costigan (Jeffrey D. Sams) was introduced and he joined the team after the death of a sleepwalker. Although 9 episodes of the 12 originally ordered were shot, the series was cancelled after just 2 episodes aired. Some US and Canadian stations ran the next 5 episodes in the spring of 1998 and in Britain and Finland all 9 were shown. A number of episodes have been released on DVD (region 2) in Germany as "The Sleepwalker Project".moreless

And Gloria, who's never had a friend she can trust, finds one in Hope.

    NBC (ended 1998)
    "This powerful one-hour family drama from executive producer John Wells (ER) and creator/supervising producer Matthew McNair Carnahan (Black Circle Boys) centers on the McCallisters, a working-class Irish-Catholic family from New York's Hell's Kitchen, whose five young-adult siblings lead contrasting lives and whose fierce loyalties are often pushed to the limit." "Capturing the compelling, poignant reality of familial relationships, the series stars Tate Donovan, Charlotte Ross, Justin Louis, Sam Trammell, Bonnie Root, Kim Raver, John Spencer and Jill Clayburgh." "Bobby (Justin Louis, Public Morals) an intense, ambitious police detective who works the streets of Hell's Kitchen, believes that his brother Liam (Tony Award nominee Sam Trammell, Ah Wilderness), an emerging union leader, works for a boss tied to organized crime. Also, to Bobby's dismay, his wife Clarissa (Kim Raver, Central Park West) maintains a suspiciously close relationship with Liam. Kevin McCallister (Tate Donovan, Warner Bros.' Friends and Hercules), a young parish priest, and the rest of the family concern themselves with the wild, self-destructive behavior of the youngest of the clan, Amanda (Bonnie Root, Home Invasion). Successful stockbroker and older sister Fiona's (Charlotte Ross, Days of Our Lives) long-term affair with her married boss wreaks havoc on her self-esteem. A sixth sibling [Mikey] died under mysterious circumstances years ago." "The tightly knit clan gathers weekly at the home of their parents, Eileen and Simon McCallister, for Sunday dinner -- putting aside conflicts and focusing on the unwavering love that's at the core of this family." (Warner Bros. press release) After four years of giving them huge audiences from that hospital show he helped bring to the small screen, NBC wanted John Wells to give them another rambling ensemble drama along the same lines -- and the same ratings. Wells latched on to a script from indie filmmaker Matthew McNair Carnahan, and chose this as his next project, claiming at the time that it was as different from ER as night and day. Wells also acknowledged that sudsy family dramas like Trinity have hardly ever been instant hits in the past -- as ER was and as NBC wanted -- and that, as a slow-building show, it needed a patient network who would give it time to develop an audience. Seems he momentarily forgot what network he sold it to. Trinity redefined slow-building (actually, it redefined reverse-building), and was yanked off the schedule at the beginning of November sweeps, three weeks after its belated premiere, two weeks after NBC's programming division underwent management changes. NBC stated they would make an announcement on its future by Christmas, but the coffin was sealed pretty much shut when reruns of Law & Order (incidentally, a slow-building show they somehow did manage to let grow) pulled bigger numbers. NBC never did make that announcement, and Warner Bros. stopped production four episodes early. The following season, John Wells took John Spencer, Kim Raver, Skipp Sudduth, Bobby Cannavale and a lot of the production crew with him -- and proved he wasn't a one-hit wonder. Right around the time Trinity dropped off the face of prime time, the programming chief who developed it, Warren Littlefield, was sent on his merry way. In January, 1999, a Littlefield-free NBC saw Trinity's Friday vacancy filled with a sudsy family drama called Providence. Which gave...well, you all know what came of that.

    Another of the buddy cop shows using the formula of an old cop with an unorthodox young cop. Created by Robert Palm, Hardball is the story of Charlie Battles, a 45-year-old by-the-book cop who's told he must soon take a desk job or face a forced retirement. Charlie doesn't feel his age, he can still play hardball with the youngest of them. Given a temporary reprieve, Charlie is gets a new partner, Joe "Kaz" Kaczierowski, whose 25 years old, has long hair, rides a monster Harley and wears his badge on a T-shirt. Charlie thinks he won't have a problem keeping up with Kaz, they would often challenge each other to physical contests for their decision making process. Halfway through the series run, NBC put the show on hiatus and the show went through a retooling. During the 9 Dec 94 broadcast of an episode of Homicide: Life on the Street, there was an audio and video clip of Hardball used during a scene in a bar. The episode that was used is unknown, but it featured Charlie saying something to Kaz about "screwing around with this radio", then a car chase is shown. Why the Homicide:... production team decided to use a clip from this series is unknown.
