Beautiful People is a drama series that follows the lives of two sisters, Karen and Sophie Kerr, as they navigate their way through high school while living in a small town in New Mexico. Karen, played by Torrey DeVitto, is the older of the two and is determined to escape the dull life of their hometown and pursue a career as a model in New York City. Sophie, played by Sarah Foret, is the younger sister and is more interested in fitting in with the popular crowd at school.

The show also features a number of other characters, including Lynn Kerr, the girls' mother played by Daphne Zuniga, and Brett Parker, Karen's love interest played by Jackson Rathbone. Kyle Schmid plays Gideon, a mysterious stranger who arrives in town and has a romantic connection with Sophie. Ricky Mabe plays Simon, a computer genius who is friends with Sophie and has a crush on her. Kathleen Munroe plays Annabelle, Karen's roommate and fellow model in New York. James McCaffrey plays Julian Fiske, a rich and powerful businessman who takes Karen under his wing. Barbara Mamabolo plays Jasmine, one of Sophie's friends who is constantly at odds with her. Genelle Williams plays Raina, another of Sophie's friends who is more accepting of her. Jordan Madley plays Chelsea, a popular girl who Sophie looks up to. Viktoria Foxx plays Karen's boss at a local diner. Kimberly Huie plays Marisol, Gideon's ex-girlfriend. Matthew Del Negro plays Michael, a photographer who works with Karen. Peter Hermann plays Mark, a fashion designer who also works with Karen.

Throughout the series, the Kerr sisters face a number of challenges and obstacles as they try to pursue their dreams and find their place in the world. Karen must balance her career aspirations with her relationships with Brett and Julian, while Sophie struggles to fit in and deal with her feelings for Gideon. Lynn faces her own demons as she tries to provide for her family and confronts her past mistakes. Meanwhile, the other characters deal with their own issues and try to find their own paths in life.

Beautiful People was praised for its diverse cast and realistic portrayals of teen life. It tackled issues such as identity, sexuality, class, and ambition in a way that was both relatable and entertaining. The show also featured a strong soundtrack, with songs by artists such as The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, and Death Cab for Cutie.

Unfortunately, Beautiful People only ran for two seasons before it was cancelled due to low ratings. However, it remains a beloved show among its fans and is still available to stream on various platforms today.
