Various American Cities: Columbia Broadcasting System [CBS] / Darren Star Productions, 1995. Revised Yellow script for the third episode of season one of the 1995 prime time soap opera. Copy belonging to production coordinator Shelley Houis, with her name in manuscript ink on the title page. Script housed in a blue three-ring binder with approximately 100 pages of production documents relating to episodes two and three of season one, including (in addition to the script) cast and crew contact lists, equipment rentals, filming locations, and shooting schedules.

The series followed the staff of trendy society magazine "Communique," a group of powerful, money-hungry New Yorkers. The series aired on CBS for two seasons, with the final episode airing on June 28, 1996. The series was a manifestation of efforts by CBS to boost ratings with "prestige" television (whose time, unfortunately, had not yet come), but the network ultimately decided to return in 1996 to more traditional fare.

Title page present, dated June 22, 1995, with credits for director James Frawley and screenwriter David Stenn. 77 leaves, with last page of text numbered 55. Xerographic duplication, rectos only, with pink, blue, and yellow revision pages throughout, dated variously between 6/29/95 and 7/6/95. Pages about Fine, binder Very Good plus, lightly foxed.
