The Wilson’s are a happy-go-lucky midwestern family from the great state of Kansas who are making the exciting move out to the glitz and glamour of Beverly Hills. Former West Beverly High alum Harrison “Harry” Wilson has just been offered a job as principal at his alma matter due to the recent vacancy of the position (allegedly due to some improprieties conducted between former Vice Principal Yvonne Teasley and AP English teacher Gil Myers, who never learned from his scandal with Sue Scanlan), as well as his impressive work on prime-time dramas such as Silk Stalkings and Melrose Place. The Wilson family also consists of wife Debbie (an aspiring amateur photographer with a love for all things “John Stamos”), daughter Annie (a name which I believe loosely translates to “I hate freedom” in Latin), and adopted son Dixon, who, amongst other things, really loves his Dr. Pepper™ on long road trips. We join the family mid-conversation as they have just crossed the Beverly Hills city line, heading northwest on Wilshire Blvd…
Debbie: So are you kids excited about moving to Beverly Hills and starting over at a new school with such a rich historical tapestry?
Dixon: You bet I am mom. But I tell you what, I sure am parched, and we all know that no road trip is complete without an ice-cold Dr. Pepper. Hey, Annie, pass me a can filled with 23 delicious flavors living in harmony so that I can partake in a taste.
Debbie: Annie, I think Dixon is still waiting for his drink.
Harry: Annie, for the love of God, give Dixon a Dr. Pepper. Don’t you know that I was Sgt. Chris Lorenzo on Silk Stalkings??
Dixon: Hey dad, I think we forgot Annie in Kansas.
Harry: “Forgot?” That’s an odd choice of words Dixon.
Harry gives the camera a sly wink, and we fade into the hip new opening credits
