"Sparks" was supposed to be the pilot for a proposed Victoria Principal drama series. It's not surprising it didn't make it. The story was awful and Principal, usually pretty good at drama, just couldn't make this one take off.
The location shots were filmed at my alma mater while I was a freshman there, with the university's library standing in as the Albuquerque mayor's office. I remember walking across campus with a friend who was irked at the main mall being blocked off after three days, and he yelled, "For godssake! It's only a two-hour movie! Go home already!!"
After seeing this dissaster, I think he should have been screaming a lot earlier.
