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 Spelling and 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 '90s. 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.
Spelling, Garth and Maggie Malina ("Single Ladies") will serve as executive producers. The story is by Spelling and Shepard Boucher ("Men at Work"). Boucher wrote the pilot.
"Mystery Girls" is scheduled to shoot in November.
