Friday May 17, 2019

Is it any surprise that there is drama on the set of the "Beverly Hills, 90210" reboot?

Variety reports that there are some behind-the-scenes changes on the Fox reboot of the popular 1980s series. "Showrunner Patrick Sean Smith and several senior writers have quit the six-episode series, which is titled "BH90210." The exact reason for the exodus is unclear. One source said the dispute was over interference from two of the show's lead actresses, while another noted that the writers were unhappy with one of the executives overseeing the project," writes Variety.

Smith has been replace by Paul Sciarrotta, one of the show's writing staff, who has been named the new showrunner, along with the series creators, Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler.

The reboot, according to Variety, "is set to debut on Fox on Aug. 7. Original series cast members Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling will all return. In the series, the actors will not be playing their characters from the show, but rather heightened versions of themselves. Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it's time to get a 'Beverly Hills, 90210' reboot up and running."
