JENNIE GARTH JOINS TORI SPELLING IN ABC FAMILY’S “MYSTERY GIRLS” PILOT

AS STAR AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

 

CASTING MARKS A REUNION OF THE “BEVERLY HILLS 90210” STARS

 

 

ABC Family has cast Jennie Garth to join former “Beverly Hills 90210” co-star Tori Spelling in the network’s comedy pilot, “Mystery Girls.” Both Spelling and Garth will also serve as executive producers. The casting marks a reunion of the two from their days on the hit series.

 

“Mystery Girls,” starring Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth, follows a former starlet who is roped into solving crimes with her former mystery TV show co-star when a witness to a crime will only speak to the Infamous ‘Mystery Girls,’ which was the highest rated program of the 90’s. Spelling will play Holly, who is desperate to regain her former fame and plans to resurrect her life by using her acting skills and crime "experience" to open a detective agency. Now she just has to get Charlie (played by Jennie Garth), her former co-star-turned suburban housewife and mother, on board with the plan. Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth and Maggie Malina (“Single Ladies”) will serve as executive producers. The story is by Tori Spelling and Shepard Boucher (“Men At Work”). The pilot was written by Shepard Boucher. “Mystery Girls” is scheduled to shoot in November.

    Hmm wonder if they’ll pair this with Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy next summer and do a comedy block. If that’s the case, then can we expect a 4th comedy?

    Think I see a lot of 90210 guest stars. Sure they will try to get Jason, Luke,Shannon,and even Brian to stop by.

    They’re not getting Shannen. She and Tori can’t stand each other which is why they never appeared together on the new 90210.
