Though its three-season run makes it one of the shorter American soap operas to hit the airwaves, Sunset Beach still made a splash when it premiered in 1997. It was the first original daytime drama in eight years and the first foray into the genre for über-producer Aaron Spelling, whom NBC tapped to hook a younger audience with the show’s combination of ”bitches, bastards, and biceps.”

The actor got his break on the 1997 series 'Sunset Beach.'

Alas, the sun set on Sunset Beach in October 1999, when the Peacock Network announced its cancellation — two months after introducing Passions, the most recent American daytime drama debut — and the show left the air on December 31, 1999.
