Remember This Zip Code?
I’m sure you’re all familiar with a little show called Beverly Hills, 90210 that preoccupied the lives of just about every adolescent for a decade. Fox is set to air a special Beverly Hills, 90210: 10-Year High School Reunion on May 11 at 9 p.m. eastern time.
Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Luke Perry, Jennie Garth, and Gabrielle Carteris are headlining the list of cast members who will share stories and memories from their years working on the show. Conspicuously absent will be Tori Spelling, daughter of executive producer Aaron Spelling. She is “busy working on other projects” according to the network. Since when does Tori Spelling have anything better to do except appear in Daddy’s latest teen-targeted show? The show originally ran from October 1990 until May 2000. It remains Fox’s longest-running drama series.
ESPN Making a Lucky Fan’s “Dream” Come True
Ever watch Sportscenter and around the 15th resounding “boo-yah” realize that you could be doing a better job than the anchors? Well, ESPN is going to give you a chance. A new reality show, vying to be the American Idol of the sports world, is currently in development. Dubbed Dream Job, the show will invite aspiring sports anchors to submit audition tapes. The winner will receive a one-year run on Sportscenter. “We’re going to give the series business a shot, but there’s little room for failure here.” “We want to go one-for-one,” said executive VP of programming and production Mark Shapiro. I like how their executives are running off sports analogies like it’s going out of style. Guess they don’t call ESPN the “All Sports Network” for nothing.
Dumb Statement of the Week
“I wish Sydney would disappear — just like her mother did!” O.J. Simpson recently said of his 17 year-old daughter while sitting in a Miami bar. Last time I checked, disappearing and being brutally murdered are two different things. After escaping double homicide charges, you would think that O.J. “The Juice” Simpson would have enough common sense to keep his mouth shut. But as usual, he defies all sensible logic.
