9021-Oh boy! RadarOnline.com has learned another remake of the classic 90’s teen soap Beverly Hills 90210 is close to getting a green light — and it couldn’t come sooner for troubled Tori Spelling!
On Wednesday, Dec. 19, Spelling was seen with original cast members including
Sources confirm to Radar exclusively that a new show is being pitched to several networks, but some originals aren’t invited back to the high school reunion, including troublemaker Shannen Doherty.
As Radar first reported in March, Spelling, 45, has been begging Garth to join her for a reboot – and it’s much-needed payday!
“Jennie and Tori have become each other’s lifeline,” an insider told Radar. “They both need the job and are hungry for fame and a weekly payday.”
According to the insider, the actresses are “counting on $200,000 a week at least” for doing a new project based on the original hit.
As Radar readers know, Spelling, star of the original ‘90’s series, has had a plethora of personal problems lately, as her career has stalled. In fact, Spelling has been fighting with husband Dean McDermott for months, arguing over their money woes, parenting differences, and the actress’ persistent health issues.
It all culminated this holiday season, when after an explosive argument, Spelling kicked McDermott out of their home!
“She blames him for her not having a career,” a source told Radar. “She said if it weren’t for him and his desire for such a big family, she’d be working.”
Add her love life problems to the recent lawsuit filed by TD Bank USA accusing Spelling of owing them money, and a reboot, along with the paycheck it could bring, might be just what the doctor ordered.
Scroll through this Radar gallery to learn more about the possible reboot and why Doherty isn’t coming back.
CBS Television Studios is apparently developing what is being called an "untraditional reboot," of the original Fox show. However, according to media reports, the actors may not be playing their original characters.
Several broadcast and streaming networks, like Netflix and Hulu, are said to be interested in a new show.
The original series ran for 10 years, starting in 1990, on Fox, and followed the adventures of a group of good-looking students suffering though adolescence at West Beverly Hills High School.
Fans will remember the rebooted and updated the show in 2008, renaming it simply 90210. Spelling, Garth and Shannen Doherty reprised their roles during the first season.
But Doherty was noticeably absent from the post-pitch coffee session, raising questions about her involvement in a new reboot.
As Radar has reported, Doherty, 47, is currently in remission after suffering and surviving breast cancer, and she seems to have little interest in a return to the spotlight.
“Shannen’s decided to quit acting for a career behind the camera,” an insider told Radar. “She’s already had some producing and directing credits over the years but now she’s going all out.
Also absent from the pitch session: Luke Perry. Because of his current deal with Riverdale, Entertainment Tonight reports Perry could only guest star on a potential 90210 reboot, and could not be a series regular.
Spelling teased the new project on social media back in march, captioning a photo “#back2work great creative day yesterday with my #partnerincrime @jenniegarth #90210vibes #donnaandkellyforver #besties.”
