STATUS: previously in development (2004-2005 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) There are the wealthy. The very wealthy. And then the obscenely wealthy. They would be the residents of 111 Gramercy Park. Old money, new money, married into money. The only thing they care about more than money is spending it well... and naturally, having children to inherit what's left. Now meet the overworked, underpaid staff, the nannies who are the only ones allowed to see what really goes on behind closed doors. More intimate than friends, yet still strangers. They have keys to their homes and share secrets about who's nice, who's mean, who's cheap, who cheating, who's abusive, and who's an outright criminal. Enter a world where the normal rules just don't apply – where power and passion fuel ego. Picture the Carringtons, the Colbys, the Ewings, their nannies and help all living together in one perfect Manhattan apartment building. Upstairs and downstairs collide in a true drama of the classes.
