DYNASTY REUNION: CATFIGHTS & CAVIAR reunites original series stars Joan Collins, Linda Evans and John Forsythe to pay tribute and celebrate the long-running series "Dynasty," one of the most popular series in television history, to be broadcast Tuesday, May 2 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The legendary cast will gather together at the Filoli Mansion in Northern California, which was the home of the show's billionaire hero, Blake Carrington, and his infamous family. Al Corley, Pamela Sue Martin, Catherine Oxenberg and Gordon Thomson also return.
Premiering 25 years ago in 1981, "Dynasty," which ran through 1989, exposed the saga of a wealthy oil business family and the conflicts that constantly arose between two huge corporations: Denver Carrington, owned by patriarch Blake Carrington, and the Colby Company, owned by his ex-wife, Alexis. John Forsythe played Blake Carrington and Linda Evans played his former secretary and current wife, Krystle. Joan Collins played Alexis Morrell Carrington Colby Dexter, Blake's volatile ex-wife and business rival. Al Corley was seen as Steven Carrington, Blake's openly gay son, while Gordon Thomson played Adam Carrington, his son who was kidnapped in childhood. Pamela Sue Martin played Fallon, Blake's pampered and spoiled daughter, and his fourth child, Amanda, who was hidden from Blake by Alexis, was played by Catherine Oxenberg.
Each cast member will reminisce about the time spent making the series and the scenes that they most treasure and enjoyed. Show creators Esther & Richard Shapiro, as well as famed fashion designer, Nolan Miller, will also be on hand to talk about how the show and its style evolved over the years. Film clips of scenes from the show will also be seen.
During its nine season run, "Dynasty" was one of the most popular primetime soaps, spending three seasons ranked among the top five programs, peaking at Number One in its fifth season averaging 25.0/37.
