WB (Sundays, 9 p.m. ET)


Producer Aaron Spelling, the Caesar Augustus of fluff, adds another outpost to his far-flung yet weightless empire. At the heart of Savannah, deluxe flapdoodle set in that southern city, are three friends: silky-blonde Reese Burton (Shannon Sturges), a rich bride-to-be who has been saving her virginity for her honeymoon; Lane MacKenzie (Robyn Lively), permed and plucky, back home from evil New York City for the wedding; and auburn-haired Peyton Richards (Jamie Luner), who is trash. The daughter of Reese's housemaid, Peyton is having an affair with Reese's fiancé, co-trash Travis Peterson (George Eads). Complications rapidly ensue. Except for the fact that everyone drinks lots of coffee, Savannah bears no resemblance to current life in America, which is a large part of its silly charm. Both the dialogue and the acting are untaxingly, pleasurably obvious.
