Melrose 2.0 Gets Greenlight

The original Melrose Place was never a very high-minded place, but The CW is giving its reboot not only the greenlight but a green-minded director: Inconvenient Truth Oscar-winner Davis Guggenheim.

Like the 90s original, the new Melrose will follow a group of twentysomethings living in a trendy section of Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But with Guggenheim helming the pilot, they may recycle and drive Priuses this go-round.

Guggenheim, who also directed the Barack Obama bio film played at the Democratic National Convention, has a bit of history with Melrose: his brother-in-law is original cast member Andrew Shue.

The director's TV credits include the dramas Deadwood and 24, the pilot of The Unit - plus Fox's beloved Party of Five.

Do you plan to watch the Melrose remake?

Really, CW? Really! You couldn't think of anything better?I really have no interest in this at all, nor do I think other people will.I think it will crash and burn.
