Series Info

A bloated 'Dynasty' spin-off about members of California's wealthy Colby clan. Aaron Spelling filled the show with fading film stars and buff bods, but never captured the campy magic and majesty of the original show. On the air for only two seasons and with occasionally wacky story lines (Fallon's alien abduction, for one), fans rejoiced when, after the series' demise, much of the cast was incorporated into 'Dynasty.'
