Darren Star's show-within-a-show parody of Melrose Place and Beverly Hills, 90210 (he was the mastermind behind both) generated significant buzz when Aaron Spelling insisted that the Marcy Sternfeld (Lindsay Sloane) character be rewritten to be more sympathetic. The manipulative former bulimic actress is apparently an all too obvious caricature of his daughter, Tori Spelling. The show is a hilarious exposé of the teen soap genre.
