OverviewEdit

Two young adult siblings Amy and Sam move to Los Angeles in hope for fame. After just winning the lottery, they are moving into a huge mansion. They meet everyone else and they become friends over time.

CancellationEdit

After the 6th season, the network was considering to cancel the show due to low ratings, but suprisingly renewed it for a 7th season,

Season FinaleEdit

Originally, the series was only supposed to have six seasons, but the network renewed it for a seventh season. The cast and crew were unaware if this would be their last season until about 2 weeks before filming started, the network told him it would be they're last. The initial reaction to the cast and crew was shocked, they thought maybe it could push through. When the promo for the seventh season aired and revealed it was the final series, a lot of the public were disappointed, saying it was a great series. Others said it was a very long run and it's the right time.
