The comedy follows two former child stars, famous for their roles as television sleuths, reuniting to open their own detective agency
Jennie Garth is joining her former “Beverly Hills, 90210” co-star Tori Spelling in ABC Family’s comedy pilot, “Mystery Girls.”
The pilot, which begins shooting in November, follows Spelling and Garth treading familiar territory as two actresses who starred in one of the most popular television series of the ’90s.
When the witness to a crime will only speak to the once-famous “Mystery Girls,” Holly (Spelling) runs with the opportunity to revive her career by opening a detective agency — providing Charlie (Garth), now a suburban mom, agrees to get back into action.
Spelling, who developed the story with writer Shepard Boucher (“Men at Work”), will executive produce with Garth and Maggie Malina (“Single Ladies”).
Since her days playing Donna Martin alongside Garth on father Aaron Spelling’s teen drama “90210,” Spelling has had scattered acting gigs, while starring in her Oxygen reality series, “Tori & Dean.”
Garth reprised her “90210” role as Kelly Taylor on The CW’s reboot after starring alongside Amanda Bynes for four seasons on sitcom “What I Like About You.”
