'Mystery Girls' to reunite Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling on ABC Family

Alright, I heard about Mystery Girls a while back and I wasn't too excited about it. But after watching Jennie Garth in a plethora of holiday specials this year, dammit -- I'm in really looking forward to seeing these two gals back in action again!

I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't be ridiculously cool to find out they were going to invite Shannen Doherty and Tiffani Amber Thiessen along for some of their cases, because the more Beverly Hills 90210 alumni the merrier.

According to the official release, Mystery Girls will be about two former TV starlets who played detectives brought together again by a real life mystery. Garth plays Charlie Contour (what a name!) a suburban housewife and mother and Tori Spelling plays Holly Hamilton who longs for the glory days of the '90s when she was on television (sounds familiar).

The duo will be joined by newcomer Miguel Pinzon who plays Nick, a true fan of their show which was aptly titled "Mystery Girls" and when he witnesses a crime, the only people he will speak with are the ones he thinks best for the job -- the fake gals he watched on TV. Only in Hollywood, right?

Charlie and Holly will have to find out if they learned any real investigative skills while playing detectives on TV and they'll make us laugh and be generally happy that they're back on our televisions in the process.

From where I stand, it's a win-win. I still have absolutely no idea what slate of programming ABC Family is trying to put together as it casts such a wide net, but I can't seem to turn my head away, so whatever it is, it's working.

Will you be tuning into Mystery Girls? My hand is raised!
