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. The pilot was written by Shepard Boucher. MYSTERY GIRLS is scheduled to shoot in November.
