- 3 Seasons
Baldwin Hills is a reality TV show that aired on BET for three seasons, from July 10, 2007 to March 17, 2009. Although the BET website still lists it as a current TV show, no new episodes have been filmed or talked about since 2009. The show follows a group of wealthy African-American teenagers living in the Baldwin Hills district of Los Angeles. The show has been compared to the MTV show Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, which has a similar focus and format. The students go to school, the beach, shopping malls, parties, and generally show the audience what it's like to be a teenager growing up in a wealthy Los Angeles neighborhood. Only three of the main characters have stayed the same throughout all three seasons: Gerren Taylor, Moriah Johnson, and Staci (whose last name was never revealed on the show). Gerren was the most high-profile of the three. She had a brief modeling career in her early teens, but when the Baldwin Hills show began, her career had been seriously dwindling, although she still continued to get the occasional modeling job. Moriah was a young gay man who found love at the end of season 3, while Staci's overall story arc involved money issues and her career plans, which had to be put on hold when she found out she was pregnant. Some of the other teenagers the show has focused on are Ashley Calloway (in the first two seasons) and Johnathan Franklin (only in season two). Several other teenagers were only ever identified by their first names but appeared in multiple episodes. These included Justin, Sal, Seiko and Aunjel.
