A prime-time soap opera, inspired by the English soap opera, Coronation Street. Some sensational plot lines from the novel (like incest) were replaced with less controversial themes (like teen pregnancy). It aired twice a week then 3 times a week and then as the ever more confusing cast changes caught up to the ratings, back to twice a week.

The series was revived as a daytime serial from April 3, 1972 to January 4, 1974 as Return to Peyton Place. Three of the actors from the prime time series reprised their roles on the daytime series – Frank Ferguson as Eli Carson, Patricia Morrow as Rita Harrington, and Evelyn Scott as Ada Jacks. However, the daytime series was not as successful as the prime time series

Two tv movies were made. The first, Murder in Peyton Place aired on NBC in the fall of 1977. The 2nd movie, Peyton Place: The Next Generation, aired on NBC in the spring of 1985. It was conceived as a pilot to bring back the serial, but the show never came to fruition.
