Grosse Pointe was a Show Within a Show Work Com that aired on The WB from 2000 to 2001. Based on Darren Star's experiences working on Beverly Hills, 90210, it revolved around the behind-the-scenes antics of an eponymous, struggling WB Teen Drama, and starred Irene Molloy, Bonnie Somerville, Al Santos, William Ragsdale, Lindsay Sloane, Kyle Howard, Kohl Sudduth, and later Nat Faxon. It also frequently featured cameos from stars of other WB and/or Darren Star series.
