We all know Peyton Place, but I wonder if there were other titles that might have worked as a TV series? I've never seen this movie, but it seems to be a dysfunctional rich-family saga. The Long Hot Summer was remade as a mini-series in the 1980s, but there was another series in the 1960s. According to IMDB, these were stand-alone episodes instead of a serialized drama. Do you think this story could work in today's TV landscape? Without a supernatural/horror theme? I've always thought that the automobile-dynasty from the Harold Robbins' movie The Betsy could have been the inspiration for another soap series. (I think I would change the title). ??
