WATCH: 10 Failed Aaron Spelling TV Shows


By Andrew Belonsky

Crime, crap, and Drew Barrymore.

7. UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL: In 1995, inspired by ER, Spelling Entertainment tried its hand at a medical drama. It lost that hand: only 9 episodes were ever made, but apparently it was popular enough to be dubbed over, as you'll see in this clip.

8. KINDRED: THE EMBRACED: Described as a cross between The Godfather and Melrose Place, and clearly inspired by Interview with a Vampire, this 1996 vampire drama set in Los Angeles was not nearly as successful as any of those titles. CBS put a stake through its heart after eight episodes. On the bright side, that gave Kelly Rutherford the opportunity to move into Melrose.
