As most everyone knows, The CW Network is launching a spin-off of “Beverly Hills
, 90210” and it’s called “90210.”
While the premiere episode airs this Tuesday night at 8pm, so far no one has seen it, and that’s due to the network not sending out any screeners to critics or media folks. The network claims it’s due to wanting to keep all the surprises under wraps, but usually when you don’t let anyone see something it’s cause for alarm. However, with the name “90210,” even if the critics bashed it, most people are going to tune in for at least the premiere…
Also, with Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty reprising their characters for a few episodes on this new version, the producers have guaranteed many people checking it out for no other reason but to relive their teenage years. If the ratings are high, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see other original characters doing cameos…after all, a lot of them could probably use the cash.
Anyway, while the network hasn’t provided me with full clips from the episode, they did give me a video featurette, an on set video interview with Jennie Garth and some behind the scenes footage from filming the premiere. Take a look below the synopsis:
An edgy, contemporary spin-off of the iconic drama “Beverly Hills, 90210,” the new “90210” looks at life through the eyes of Annie Wilson (Shenae Grimes, “Degrassi: The Next Generation”) and her brother Dixon (Tristan Wilds, “The Wire”), whose first day at West Beverly Hills High School leaves no doubt they’re not in Kansas anymore. The Wilson family, including dad Harry (Rob Estes, “Melrose Place”) and mom Debbie (Lori Loughlin, “Summerland”), has relocated to Beverly Hills to keep an eye on Harry’s mother Tabitha (Jessica Walter, “Arrested Development”), a feisty-but-faded former television star and a charter member of the Betty Ford Clinic.
