90210 heading for UK Screen

The new remake of hit show Beverly Hills 90210, which premiered September in the US to mixed reviews is heading to our UK screens.  90210 which has a brand new cast will be screened on E4 in the New Year. 

Some old favourites from the original series are on hand to lend support to the mostly new cast.  Jennie Garth is returning as Kelly Taylor, a new guidance counsellor at West Beverly High, andShannon Doherty is returning as Brenda.

The New 90210 cast will introduce us to new face Shenae Grimes playing the ‘I’m new to town’ character along with her adopted brother played by Tristan Wilds who you may know from playing Micheal Lee in the critically acclaimed show ‘The Wire’.  AnnaLynne McCord also stars playing Bitch Naomi Clark, I know AnnaLynne from playing the psycho who nearly killed Julia in ‘Nip/Tuck’.

I’ve seen the first 4 episodes and thought the show was lacking, and is no competition to hits shows in the same genre ‘Gossip Girl’ or ‘Privileged’.  Lets see how it does when it hits our screens.
