DYNASTY: The Love Story of Steven & Luke (2/15)
"Steven's mother Alexis (Joan Collins) sends the boys on a business trip to Santa Barbara, making Claudia anxious.
TRIVIA: The creators of 'Dynasty' originally conceived Steven Carrington as a gay man, but made him bisexual following pressure from the ABC TV network.
Al Corley, who originally played Steven, voiced his complaints about such direction for the character and, following a shouting match with Aaron Spelling's business partner, executive producer Douglas S.Cramer, got fired in early 1982.
He was replaced by Jack Coleman a year later. By late 1984 however the new socially conscious head writer Camille Marchetta came up with a new gay storyline for Steven."
