Marcy continues to fret over Johnny's attraction to Courtney, although Courtney mostly finds him disgusting. Hunter suggests that Marcy forget about Johnny, as he was never interested in her. Rob and...
This Chicago-set sitcom follows the intertwined lives of six young urbanites trying to learn the ropes of adulthood. Through breakups and whatever other curve-balls life throws them, the pals stick together.
The pilot episode was altered at the request of Darren Star's former boss Aaron Spelling. Originally the character of Marcy, played by Lindsay Sloane, was a red-headed bulemic who got her job because her uncle was a studio executive. Spelling took offense and thought that it was a reference to his daughter Tori Spelling who was a star on "Beverly Hills, 90210" a series created by Darren Star and produced by Aaron Spelling. Before the pilot aired Star took out all references to how Marcy got her job, a scene in which Marcy threw up in a limo and even went as far as to digitally alter her hair so that it was brown and not red. Joely Fisher, who played producer Hope Lustig, was originally credited in the opening titles but was removed after the first episode when she decided to leave the show to work on "Normal, Ohio" a sitcom which was canceled. She was billed in four other episodes of "Grosse Pointe" as a Special Guest Star. See more »
Grosse Pointe screened in Australia on the 10 Network on a Sunday evening. The show is now screening on the Fox8 channel on Foxtel(cable television).
I am really enjoying watching the show again. I was so annoyed that the WB cancelled Grosse Pointe as I thought it was one of the best sitcoms around. It was funny, well written and convincingly acted.
I also really enjoyed trying to work out which Grosse Point cast member(as in Hunter etc..)was based on which Hollywood actor or actress. I am sure that I have a few correct.
I had Hunter Fallow as Shannon Doherty. With Marcy Sternfield I thought she might be based on Tori Spelling. Quentin King has to be Luke Perry but I am not really sure about the rest.
Anyway, I know its too late for the show to saved but I am hoping that Warner Bros will release a DVD of Grosse Pointe, maybe with heaps of extras.
Living in hope...
