    Something I'd like to know about the first-season closing credits of O-R ABC Dynasty: what was Fox-Cat? That vanity label was IAW Aaron Spelling on the first season's worth of O-R Dynasty, so I was just wondering.

    FOX-CAT was Esther and Richard Shapiro's production company name. But after they "left" the show in Season 2 and handed greater control over to Spelling (and the Pollocks) they changed their company's name to Richard & Esther Shapiro Productions -- perhaps because they were no longer listed as "executive producers" for S2.

    Then, of course, they came back for S3 because Spelling said the show was "out of control" which, Aaron being Aaron, had to mean the budget.

    Thanks for clarifying it-- I never knew that the Shapiros called their vanity label (IAW Aaron Spelling) by that name.

    Indeed, I had often wondered about that. You'd think 20th Century Fox would have objected to their using the "Fox" name.
