TV show description:
Based on the popular 1995 movie, this sitcom follows the story of privileged Cher Horowitz (Rachel Blanchard), a good-natured but “clueless” Beverly Hills teenager.
Cher’s life primarily revolves around high school, extracurricular activities, and the problems of friends like self-obsessed Amber Mariens (Elisa Donovan), confident Dionne “Dee” Davenport (Stacey Dash), hip Murray Duvall (Donald Adeosun Faison), and dim-witted Sean Holliday (Sean Holland).
Cher would prefer to do her own thing but this is made difficult by her widowed father Mel Horowitz (Michael Lerner, later Doug Sheehan), intelligent step-brother Josh (David Lascher), and teachers like Miss. Geist (Twink Caplan) and Mr. Hall (Wallace Shawn).
Several actors from the movie reprised their film roles for the series or appeared in other guest roles.
