The Colbys (1985-86)

Because of the incredible success of Dynasty, Aaron Spelling and ABC decided to create a spin-off series. The Colbys focuses on Jeff Colby and his extended family, and initially several of the Dynasty actors made guest appearances. Diahann appeared as Dominique Deveraux for a total of seven episodes.

The Colbys could never match its predecessors success and was cancelled after only two seasons.
