Show's appearances on television attracted the attention of producer Aaron Spelling who felt he had star potential and decided to cast him as Jake Hanson on a few episodes of the popular series Beverly Hills 90210 in order to spin off the character as the lead in his next series Melrose Place. Debuting with much fanfare (Show was on the covers of both TV Guide and People immediately after the series' debut), the series' ratings in its first season were not up to expectations yet the show evolved in its second season from a fairly straight drama to an over-the-top soap opera serial in the Dynasty tradition. Hyped as a Generation X soap, Melrose was actually a saga for the last of the Baby Boomers and their final grasp on youth. The program also switched from being a program with Show as the unofficial star to an ensemble cast although he remained the most promenient of the male cast though the show created the most water cooler buzz for its female leads, notably Heather Locklear, Marcia Cross, and Laura Leighton, the latter of whom was briefly Show's offscreen love interest.
