Production

Adapted from the 1983 novel Monte Carlo by Stephen Sheppard (Summit Books, ISBN 0-671-44789-0), the teleplay was written by Peter Lefcourt. The miniseries was produced by Gerald W. Abrams, Collins and her then-husband Peter Holm. Directed by Anthony Page, it was reported to have cost $9 million.[1]

Broadcast and reception

The four-hour miniseries was broadcast in two parts on CBS starting on November 9, 1986.[1] John J. O'Connor of The New York Times wrote that "Monte Carlo gives us the beginnings of World War II as they might have been conceived and executed by a couturier." He noted that Collins has "more than three dozen costume changes", and that she "is convinced that her fans want only romantic adventures and beautiful people in gorgeous clothes".[1]

Collins also produced and starred in the CBS miniseries Sins earlier the same year.
