I remember (rather misguidedly) getting excited at the prospect of what this channel had to offer when it's programme slate was announced in the mid-00's. Primetime soapy goodness starring the likes of Morgan Fairchild, Bo Derek and Tatum O'Neal! What could possibly go wrong? A lot, it would seem. I only ever got to see Fashion House but it was so appallingly bad that I didn't see it out until the end. The writing was bad, the performances were bad and the budget was clearly minuscule. Did any of you indulge in any of the other soaps that the channel had to offer for that brief period in 2006 - 2007 (synopses below)? Fashion House: adapted from Cuban series Salir De Noche, Bo Derek plays fashion mogul Maria Gianni who battles for power against her newly returned arch rival Sophia Blakely (played by Morgan Fairchild). Tippi Hedren was on of the more random stars to pop up in this while the most notable name to come from this mess is probably Taylor "Chicago Fire" Kinney. Desire: this ran concurrently to Fashion House and is based on a Colombian series and also loosely inspired by Gossip Girl. Sofia Milos is the only name as such on the show. It revolved around two brothers on the run from a New Jersey crime family. I've never seen it but it had reasonably OK international sales. Wicked Wicked Games: Tatum O'Neal is a woman scorned. And Ben from Sunset Beach and Bond girl Serena Scott Thomas are among those incurring her wrath. Apparently Sean Young and Gordon Thomson were originally signed to play the Tatum and Ben (Clive Robertson) roles. Behold the acting masterclass from Tatum below. Watch Over Me: former Miss Universe Dayonara Torres plays a woman torn between her bioterrorist boyfriend and her bodyguard. Catherine Oxenberg and Casper Van Dien were among the dignitaries in the cast while Clive Robertson turned down a role in it, calling it "a waste of time". American Heiress: a Paris Hilton type and her rough and ready pilot crash into the Guatemalan jungles and fall in love. Wild Things and Black Widow actress Theresa Russell is the obligatory random Hollywood star to appear in this one alongside a pre-90210 Anna Lynne McCord and a post Fashion House / pre-One Tree Hill Robert Buckley. This was one of the last telenovelas to air and was dropped from schedules before all of the episodes played out. Saints & Sinners: this ran at the same time as American Heiress and was also dropped from the schedules before all episodes aired. One of the "starrier" vehicles on the network, it featured Mel Harris of thirtysomething, Maria Conchita Alonso, Charles Shaughnessy of The Nanny and Robin Givens. The setup was basically Romeo & Juliet on Miami Beach.
