Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth's Show Mystery Girls Gets ABC Family Pickup
Donna Martin and Kelly Taylor are back to reunite! Beverly Hills 90210 alums Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth are returning to television in the 30-minute comedy Mystery Girls, which has been given the green light by ABC Family.
The blonde besties are executive producers on the show and will costar in it as well. According to a statement from ABC Family, “Mystery Girls follows two former detective TV show starlets brought back together by a real-life mystery. Charlie Contour (Garth) is a suburban housewife and mother, while Holly Hamilton (Spelling) longs for her glory days in the 90’s when she was on television. Both of their lives are disrupted when Nick (Miguel Pinzon), a witness to a crime and a Mystery Girls fanatic, will only speak to the infamous duo, and the former friends must reunite and put their TV crime-solving skills to the test."
Spelling, 40, who married Dean McDermott in 2006, spent five years on the Oxygen reality series Tori & Dean: Inn Love and Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, which was cancelled in 2013.
The happy work news is likely a welcome distraction for Spelling whose marriage is currently in question. In the Jan. 6 issue of Us Weekly, it was revealed that McDermott, 47, had been cheating on his wife of 7 years with 28-year-old Emily Goodhand. The actress has yet to make an official statement on the status of her marriage following her husband's affair.
Garth, 41, finalized her divorce from Twilight actor Peter Facinelli in June 2013 after 11 years of marriage and split with boyfriend Michael Shimbo in November after several months of dating.
“Viewers are excited to see Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth back on television together again," Kate Juergens, ABC Family's Chief Creative Officer and Executive Vice President of Programming and Development.
