"An international pop-culture phenomenon, Beverly Hills, 90210 ruled the '90s television landscape and reigned as the top teen show for nearly a decade during which Jason Priestley, Luke Perry, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling became household names. The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story reveals the roller-coaster ride behind the show's first four seasons, highlighting the drama between cast members and producers both on and off-set as they journeyed together from near-cancellation to unparallelled fame and success," a news release said.

"Launched in 1992 as a companion for Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place quickly became a giant television hit in its own right. Originally designed to be an authentic, grounded look at 20-something life in Los Angeles, the program soon became 90210's soapier, yet equally popular counterpart. The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story highlights the remarkable behind-the-scenes moments that shaped the series including cast drama, Heather Locklear arriving to 'save' Melrose Place, and the actors begging their writers for even wilder storylines to make them fan favorites."

Set to debut Oct. 10, the telepicture will feature Dan Castellaneta, Adam Korson, Ciara Hanna, Rebecca Dalton, Frank Bailey, Ryan Bruce, Chloe McClay, Ali Cobrin, Teagan Vincze, Joseph Coleman, Brandon Barash, Karissa Tynes, Chelsea Hobbs and Lanie McAuley.
