Ready to Go Right Now

The CW has given its upcoming reboot of Melrose Place the green light – in more ways than one: The up-and-coming network has hired green-minded director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) to helm the show’s pilot.

Like the original-flavor show, Melrose Place 2.0 will follow twentysomethings living in a trendy section of Los Angeles. But with Guggenheim helming the pilot, they may recycle and drive Priuses this go-round and pass one another around, natch.

Actually, they did that way back when, too. Some things never change, after all.

And how’s this for one-degree of separation: Guggenheim’s brother-in-law is original cast member Andrew Shue, a.k.a. Billy Campbell.

Pictured at right are some of my favorite classic characters. Now click here for the deets on the new ones.
