CBS Drama to send The Colbys

TVPosted by Michael Jul 13, 2011 08:04PM

The short-lived spin-off from Dynasty is being repeated on CBS Drama from the end of July. The broadcaster has already aired seasons of Dynasty and will also air Dynasty: The Reunion, the TV movie produced after the cancellation of the soap. The Colbys revolved around the extended family of Jeff Colby (John James) based in Los Angeles. Dynasty’s mix of big business, powers struggles and melodrama was replicated for the spin-off.

The Colbys starred Stephanie Beacham, Charlton Heston, Emma Samms, Tracy Scoggins, Maxwell Caulfield, Barbara Stanwyck, Katherine Ross and Ricardo Montalban. The series also featured crossovers with parent series Dynasty as actors John Forsythe, Diahann Carroll, Gordon Thomson and Jack Coleman all appeared but notably absent was Joan Collins who lead a boycott of the spin-off.

The Coblys wasn’t as successful as Dynasty and only lasted two seasons before being cancelled. It’s last episode features the infamous UFO abduction of Fallon Carrington-Colby (Emma Samms) and was the drama’s highest rated episode. With the cancellation of the series Fallon and Jeff were transferred back to the main series and several years later Stephanie Beacham and Tracy Scoggins reprised their roles on Dynasty.

CBS Drama will begin repeating The Colbys on Monday 25th July with three airings daily at 8am, 1pm and 6pm. CBS Drama is available on Sky channel 149 and Freesat channel 134.
