The CW Plotting Beverly Hills, 90210 Spinoff

Why aren't more people watching TV? It's an incredible mystery.

Okay, so maybe this isn’t movie news, strictly speaking, but it’s still good for a chuckle — and what else are you really looking for on a Friday?

The Hollywood Reporter has shared the news that the CW, despite announcing plans to eliminate its comedy division this week, still has room on its schedule for comedy of the unintentional variety: according to an article published Thursday, the network “is developing a contemporary spinoff of Aaron Spelling‘s seminal 1990s teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210.”

CBS Paramount Network TV, owners of 90210‘s parent company, Spelling TV, is producing the show without the input of 90210 creator Darren Star; instead, the spinoff is set to be written by Veronica Mars mastermind Rob Thomas. From the article:

A year ago, Endeavor-repped Thomas developed a spinoff of sorts from “Veronica” — an alternative fourth season that would have found the title character studying at the FBI Academy. Despite a warm reception for his trailer at CW, the network ultimately canceled “Veronica,” but CW chief Dawn Ostroff said at the time that she was looking to do another project with Thomas.

As the Reporter notes, “spinoffs are hot this development season”; the new 90210 will be part of a crop that includes the Family Guy spinoff Cleveland and what the Reporter describes as “a Prison Break offshoot set at a female prison.”
