TV show description:
The drama begins when fraternal twins Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Brenda Walsh (Shannen Doherty) and their parents Jim and Cindy (James Eckhouse and Carol Potter) move to Beverly Hills from Minneapolis.
The twins attend high school and ultimately make friends with beautiful but lonely Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth), shy Donna Martin (Tori Spelling), badboy Dylan McKay (Luke Perry), party guy Steve Sanders (Ian Ziering), brainy Andrea Zuckerman (Gabrielle Carteris), and geeky David Silver (Brian Austin Green).
The series touches on a number of topical issues like date rape, alcoholism, drug abuse, teen suicide and pregnancy.
