“Hollywood Darlings” will also follow the adventures of former child stars Christine Lakin and Beverley Mitchell
Nostalgia for the ’90s will be in full swing on Pop when the network debuts the new reality show “Hollywood Darlings,” starring “Fuller House” actress Jodie Sweetin with two of her real-life best friends, whom viewers may also remember from the same decade.
The unscripted docu-comedy announced on Tuesday follows Sweetin, Christine Lakin (“Step By Step”) and Beverley Mitchell (“7th Heaven”) as they navigate the entertainment industry while taking on even bigger roles as mothers, wives and businesswomen. No premiere date has been set.
“Hollywood Darlings” is based on an original concept by Jimmy Fox (“Mob Wives”), and is produced by Objective Productions USA and All3Media America with Jimmy Fox, Layla Smith and Greg Lipstone serving as executive producers.
It’s also the third TV project for Sweetin since “Fuller House” premiered on Netflix last month. She’ll also be competing on this season of “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC.
Lakin has stayed busy by voicing characters on “Family Guy” over the years, along with starring in small roles on a number of shows, including “Modern Family,” “Melissa and Joey” and “The League.” Mitchell had a recurring role on ABC Family’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” between 2011 and 2013.
“Our childhood characters prepared us for the roles of our lives… literally,” Sweetin, Lakin and Mitchell said in a joint statement. “There really aren’t words to describe the way we grew up and the bond we share, so we decided that we wanted to give a glimpse into our unique sisterhood. Our fans have always been at the heart of it all, and we love that we have found a home on Pop. We’re so excited to go on this journey and take people inside our lives, post-childhood fame.”
Paul Adler, senior vice president of Pop’s original programing and development, added: “Anyone who was a TV fan in the ’90s grew up with Jodie, Christine and Beverley -aspiring to be their best friends, wanting to dress like them and using their popular catchphrases. ‘Hollywood Darlings’ provides an amazing opportunity for viewers to reignite their fandom for this now grown-up trio whose lives are as entertaining as they are relatable.”
