Savannah is a drama that aired on The WB.

Set in the southern city of Savannah, Georgia, the series revolves around three female friends: naïve rich girl Reese Burton, noble Lane McKenzie, and scheming bad girl Peyton Richards.

Lane left Savannah after graduating from college to become a successful journalist in New York City; she returns for the wedding of her childhood best friend, Reese, who is marrying Travis Peterson. Finding out that her apartment in New York has been burglarized, Lane tries to collect on an inheritance — only to find out that Travis has stolen every last penny of it. Reese is devastated after finding out that Travis has been having an affair with a girl he calls "Bunny", who is actually Peyton, daughter of the Burton family maid and Reese's so-called friend. Peyton envies Reese's wealth and is keen to marry for money.

Travis is soon found dead, and the first season revolves around the whodunit murder mystery and subsequent court case. There is also considerable intrigue surrounding the identity of Peyton's father (who turns out to also be Reese's father, Edward, making Peyton and Reese half-sisters) as well as the machinations of Tom Massick, a stranger in town with a score to settle. Cassandra "Cassie" Wheeler, a longtime friend of the three other women, joined the cast in season two. George Eads later re-joined the cast as Nick, the identical twin of Travis.
