Party of Five information

IMAGEIn the FOX series Party of Five, an irresponsible older brother (Matthew Fox) must take care of his siblings after their parents are killed by a drunk driver. The other siblings are played by Scott Wolf, Neve Campbell, Lacey Chabert, and Jacob Smith. Others in the cast include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Paula Devicq, Scott Grimes, Michael Goorjian, Jeremy London, Tom Mason, and Mitchell Anderson.

The Party of Five series was never a big success but was very important to the growth of the fledgling FOX network. It started out at #125 in the ratings and, over the course of four seasons, made it to #57. The ratings then started to tumble after and it was cancelled after six years on the air, in 2000.

The family’s San Francisco house was featured at the start of every episode and remains very identifiable to fans of the series. The home was sold in October 1999 for $5.4 million. It was recently sold again for $6.55 million. A different interior was used for the show but the real house sports tall ceilings with chandeliers, a large kitchen, a media/family room with cathedral ceilings, two decks and an elevator that will take you from the garage to the first level.

When Nick and Diana Salinger are killed in a car accident by a drunk driver, their 24-year-old son, irresponsible Charlie (Matthew Fox), becomes both father and brother to his four younger siblings; athletic 16-year-old Bailey (Scott Wolf), sensitive 15-year-old Julia (Neve Campbell), brainy 11-year-old Claudia (Lacey Chabert), and infant Owen (Brandon and Taylor Porter, later Andrew and Steven Cavarno, then Jacob Smith). Life in their San Francisco home is nothing short of chaotic, especially when nanny Mrs. Kelleher (Maxine Miller) suddenly quits. But all is not lost as beautiful graduate student Kirsten Bennett (Paula Devicq) is soon hired to help take care of the younger siblings. Charlie and Kirsten hit it off but he has a tough time keeping both the household and the family restaurant going. High schoolers Bailey and Julia still have a lot to learn in life and love and do so while wishing they had the guidance of their mother and father. Bailey's longest relationship are with Jill (Megan Ward) and then, with Sarah Reeves (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Julia spends much of high school in turmoil between two boyfriends, Justin Thompson (Michael Goorjian) and Griffin Holbrook (Jeremy London). Younger sister and brilliant violinist Claudia longs for her parents as she faces her most turbulent years as an adolescent. While the family tackles relationship problems, they must also deal with the adult world they've suddenly been thrust into by paying bills, handling a mortgage, and trying to keep their father's restaurant afloat. But thankfully, in this party of five, none of them have to go it alone.
