Fellow 9-0 fans, just wanted to let you know that our friend Rob Thomas has finished the first draft of the pilot for the Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff, and I’m happy to report that he’s made a young BH High student by the name of Hannah Zuckerman-Vasquez the host of the school's Blaze news show. How great is that?! Unfortunately, Miss Hannah only graces one quick scene with her presence, but we have our fingers crossed for more appearances to come...and perhaps a cameo by her accomplished parents, Andrea and Jesse?
And speaking of roles for a few of our old West Bev friends, word is Mr. Thomas has his heart set on Jennie Garth reprising her role as Kelly Taylor, who would now be a fashion design teacher at BHHS. With Jennie signed on to shoot a CBS pilot this season, we’re not sure if that idea will make the final cut, but we certainly hope so.
Need more? Rumor has it that some of the series regulars will TP the Spelling mansion in that first ep as an homage to the original show. They’re also rocking a party at the Beverly Hills Hotel—why it’s not at the Bel Age, I don’t know—and making reservations at the Peach Pit, which has clearly become much higher class. I mean, reservations? Really?!
