Beautiful People is an American drama television series about a family that moves from New Mexico to The Big Apple to make a fresh start on their lives. The series aired on the ABC Family Network from August 8, 2005, to April 24, 2006, lasting sixteen episodes. Its executive producer was Paul Stupin, who played the same role for Dawson's Creek.[1] Both Daphne Zuniga and Torrey DeVitto later appeared on the fifth and sixth season of One Tree Hill as major recurring roles, although they never shared any screen time.[2]

Characters[edit]

  • Lynne Kerr (Daphne Zuniga): Lynne leaves New Mexico after her husband leaves her for her daughter Karen's best friend. When she arrives in New York City, she is a retailer at first, until she gets a jump start in the fashion world and starts working for a prominent sports wear designer. She bumps into college sweetheart Julian Fiske, for whom she still has feelings.
  • Karen Kerr (Torrey DeVitto): Beautiful and vivacious, Karen is an aspiring model who is usually confident, but she loses some of that confidence when she begins taking diet pills to be thinner at the suggestion of one of her agents. Her first modeling gig is when she poses for the cover of a Brighton School magazine in a school business competition. She also worked wearing a chicken suit, among other odd gigs.
  • Sophie Kerr (Sarah Foret): Gifted and intelligent, Sophie is a talented photographer who wins a scholarship to the prestigious Brighton School, a hub for the children of Manhattan’s elite. She meets her good friend Gideon Lustig, who ends up falling for Sophie and Annabelle. Sophie finds herself in a romantic dilemma between elitist Nicholas Fiske and artistic Gideon.
  • Gideon Lustig (Ricky Mabe): Sensitive and adorable Gideon is a vulnerable artist who is constantly put down by his wealthy, world-renowned artist father. Gideon believes that just because he has money doesn't mean he’s better than others who aren’t as fortunate. He develops a crush on Sophie Kerr and is caught in a love triangle with her and long-time best friend Annabelle Banks.
  • Annabelle Banks (Kathleen Munroe): An aspiring photographer, Annabelle is in the shadow of Gideon, her long-time crush, when Sophie Kerr rolls into town. Her parents are divorced and both her parents left six months after it was finalized, leaving Annabelle with a babysitter. Annabelle explores her sexuality, figuring out she is bisexual.
  • Nicholas Fiske (Jackson Rathbone): Charming and extravagantly rich, Nicholas is the heir to Fiske Publications and is a BP and captain of the JV lacrosse team at the exclusive Brighton School. He turns his back on then-girlfriend Paisley Bishop to start a relationship with new girl Sophie Kerr, whose heart Nicholas competes for with Gideon.
  • Paisley Bishop (Jordan Madley): Wealthy, snobbish, and popular, Paisley is a BP and is used to getting whatever she wants, unless it happens to involve longtime on-and-off boyfriend Nicholas Fiske. Her family owns the Empire State Building and she drives a silver Porsche.
