Sweet Valley High is an American Live-action comedy-drama series very loosely based on Francine Pascal's book series of the same name. The series ran from September 5, 1994 to October 14, 1997, and was produced (and distributed) by Saban Entertainment. The rights are now held by Disney-ABC Domestic Television.
The series revolves around the lives of Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, beautiful blonde twins who live in the fictitious Sweet Valley, California, and their gang of friends. Elizabeth is warm, friendly and sincere, while her twin sister Jessica is flirty, mischievous, and irresponsible.
