Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth's new TV series Mystery Girls will premiere on ABC Family this June, the cable network announced on Monday.
The comedy, about two former detective TV show stars...
Donna and Kelly are back together! ABC Family has ordered the Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth pilot to series.
Mystery Girls will star the duo as two former TV cops who are brought back together by a real-life mystery. Garth plays Charlie, a suburban housewife and mother, while Spelling plays Holly, a former starlet who longs for her '90s glory days. Newcomer Miguel Pinzon plays Nick, the witness to a crime and a Mystery Girls fanatic who gets the girl back in action. Garth and Spelling will also executive-produce with Maggie Malina (Single Ladies).
Returning winter shows: Where we left off
You can't help but get a deliciously squirmy tingle when the infamous (to the viewer, anyway) Hannibal Lecter quips, "It's nice to have an old friend for dinner" while serving tongue to his guests, including an unctuous and chatty shrink whom Lecter sizes up by coolly noting, "Your tongue is very feisty."
This scenario takes place several episodes into the midseason run of NBC's feverishly twisted, fascinatingly macabre and visually remarkable procedural-with-a-twist Hannibal (Thursday, 10:01/9:01c), by which time I was completely creeped out and thoroughly hooked. In much the same way A&E's Bates Motel introduces a younger version of Norman Bates before he had his crazy mama mummified in the cellar, Bryan Fuller's Hannibal presents the mad Dr. Lecter before his secret identity as a cannibalistic serial killer is known to anyone but his victims. He is caginess personified, taking on the role of advisor and therapist to tormented FBI profiler/consultant Will Graham (from Thomas Harris' Red Dragon). Will has an ability to project "pure empathy" and see grisly crimes from the killer's POV, which Lecter describes quite accurately as "an uncomfortable gift."
In the fight against teen bullying, the very special TV movie is the obvious next step — hence, ABC Family's Cyberbully.
For Emily Osment, playing a tortured teen was emotionally draining. "The hardest thing was being on set every day and having to get into the state of mind where I was crying," Osment tells TVGuide.com. "It was emotionally strenuous."
ABC Family and Seventeen magazine are joining forces to fight online bullying in an upcoming campaign called Delete Digital Drama.
In our first look of a photo shoot for the campaign, some of the network's biggest stars, including Pretty Little Liars' Shay Mitchell and Tyler Blackburn, Secret Life of the American Teenager's Shailene Woodley and Daren Kagasoff and Nine Lives of Chloe King's Skyler Samuels and Grey Damon, sport matching T-shirts that bear the word "Delete." The spread will appear in Seventeen's August issue.
