More Random TV GUIDE Ads - BARE ESSENCE

This show had everything going for it. It was based on a popular blockbuster miniseries, it had an all-star cast (that included GENERAL HOSPITAL sensation Genie Francis, lovely film actress Jennifer O'Neill, YOUNG & THE RESTLESS diva JAMIE LYN BAUER and the always wonderful Jessica Walter) and a plum time slot on NBC's spring schedule following the Top 10 hit THE A TEAM and before the critically acclaimed ST. ELSEWHERE. Unfortunately after a few weeks NBC moved the show to Fridays, which was then ruled by CBS's line-up of DUKES OF HAZZARD, DALLAS and FALCON CREST. With FC on hiatus, NBC expected soap fans to switch over from Texas oil to the scandalous perfume industry. The show was gone in less than 12 weeks. On a side note, Genie Francis has just signed on to be a guest star in the third season of PRETTY, the web series which I am a producer of! I will be sure to ask her about BARE ESSENCE. :)
