A few months after starring in a Christmas movie, The Mistle-Tones, Tori Spelling has signed a new deal with ABC Family. Under the terms of the deal, the actress will be helping develop a new comedy series for the network, with the working title of Mystery Girls.
Mystery Girls will look at two actresses who starred on a detective series that no longer airs. The ladies use what they learned working on the series and carry their knowledge over into the real world, where they solve crimes. Naturally.
The show is a single-camera comedy (at this juncture, although the network may change it) and is being executive produced by Spelling and Maggie Malina, who also worked on The Mistle-Tones as a producer. The show does not currently have a writer, however, which would probably be a good thing to add.
Spelling is not a rookie on television, as any Beverly Hills 90210 fan can tell you. She has worked on a wide variety of different programs, most recently serving as the host and an executive producer on TLC's Craft Wars.
I do not ever often find myself stumbling upon ABC Family and this show certainly will not change that. The concept sounds a little corny to me.
What do you think?
