The reboot of Beverly Hills, 90210 isn’t another cookie-cutter remake, according Ian Ziering, it’s taking the idea in a bold new, meta direction.
It’s kind of a combo of the original show, plus Curb Your Enthusiasm and Desperate Housewives…. -ish.
All of the original stars –Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling– are back along with Ziering, except for Luke Perry, who passed away earlier this year.
Seems like the old gang had fun filming the 6-part miniseries and, of course the classic theme song is back.
Ian says that the new show, BH90210, will showcase the difference between the actors’ real lives and their characters on the show. Tori convinces the cast to get back together to try to sell the show as a reboot. Meta! Meta!
Series premiere tonight on FOX.
