Heather Locklear returning to 'Melrose Place'
Will appear on show beginning Nov. 17Amanda Woodward to the rescue.
After airing two "Melrose Place" episodes to lackluster ratings, the CW has signed Heather Locklear to join the update of the TV title she starred in during the 1990s.
Locklear played scheming Amanda in the original version, which she joined at the end of the first season. She will make her first appearance on the show Nov. 17.
"We're ecstatic to have the chance to bring Amanda Woodward back to 'Melrose Place,'" said executive producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer. "Heather's involvement in the show is something we've been working on for some time as we couldn't imagine creating and producing this show without the iconic character's inclusion."
