Jennie Garth Joins Tori Spelling in ABC Family’s ‘Mystery Girls’
It’s a 90210 reunion!
ABC Family has cast Jennie Garth opposite her former Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star Tori Spelling in the network’s comedy pilot, “Mystery Girls.” Both Spelling and Garth will act as executive producers on the series, which 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, an actress desperate to regain her former fame by using her acting skills and crime “experience” to open a detective agency. Garth, meanwhile, will play Charlie (played by Jennie Garth), her former co-star-turned suburban housewife and mother, who is convinced to join in on the plan. Joining Garth and Spelling as executive producers is Maggie Malina (“Single Ladies”). The story is by Spelling and Shepard Boucher (“Men At Work”), with the pilot script written by Shepard Boucher.
Mystery Girls is scheduled to shoot in November.
