The $treet

Show Summary

"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." (FOX press release) A high overhead cost, a change in upper-level management, a lack of corporate ownership, a competitive block of real estate, an alarming plummet in stock points, and a low Nielsen Industrial Average knocked The $treet off the market in seven weeks.
