Things are shaping up for the "Melrose Place" remake. After a confirmation of "Smallville" producers, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, taking the job as the show runners, characters who will replicate the original ones are introduced via EW's Michael Ausiello.
There will be David Patterson, a Melrose royalty and the son of Jake, who occasionally dates PR with a sharp tongue, Ella Flynn. There's also Jonah Miller who is obsessed to become the next Kevin Smith and has a schoolteacher fiancee named Riley Richmond. A hippie recovering from alcohol addiction is found in Auggie Kirkpatrick while a med student struggling with financial situation is found in Lauren Bishop. Another one is Violet Foster who is described as a "sex kitten" from a small town.
Ausiello also provides which original characters that the new ones best resemble. No actors have been cast yet for these characters, and a script is not yet revealed.
