California Heaven is the first scripted TV series produced for online audiences, making its debut on Monday, August 1, 2005. It subsequently moved to Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. Pacific Time, launching a new episode each week. The series was originally put into production while discussions with AOL acquiring the series were in process. Internal issues within AOL prevented the company from acquiring the show, but St. John-Fisher, the production company behind the series, continued shooting episodes on their own with a skeleton crew and not much budget. Production continued with most footage never aired.

California Heaven was created by Todd Fisher and Stewart St. John, a writer of such television shows as Disney Channel's Seventeen Again, The Incredible Hulk, The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and Sabrina, the Animated Series. St. John and Fisher were also the Executive Producers of the internet series The Spot,[1] which their broadband production company relaunched in 2003 with a brand new cast and the first mobile soap for SPRINT.

In 2011, St. John-Fisher announced a new and completed version of California Heaven would launch as part of their entertainment network web site The SFN - The Online Network, beginning summer 2011. In June, 2012 the second season of the all-new California Heaven series premiered on The SFN.

The series also reflects a murder mystery when the main character (Heaven) comes to Malibu to investigate her mother's death and becomes the target of her eccentric family as they plot against her.
