Beverly Hills, 90210 premiered Oct. 4, 1990 on Fox and ran for a decade, becoming a staple series for the network and making stars out of leads Jason Priestley, Luke Perry, Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, Shannen Doherty, Ian Ziering and Brian Austin Green. The popularity of the show – it was nominated for Best Drama Series at the Golden Globes in 1992-93 – also helped launch several spinoffs, Melrose Place and the shortlived Models Inc.
There is so much to mine from those first four years that we can only imagine how much (or how little) Lifetime will actually focus on in the two-hour TV movie, like Garth and Doherty’s early rivalry, those on-set hookups and Doherty’s dramatic exit from the show.
