Fox’s Wednesday-night miniseries BH90210 is not precisely a reboot of that network’s BEVERLY HILLS 90210/90210, which ran from 1990 through 2000. Instead, BH90210 features seven of the original series’ stars – Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Greene, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, and Ian Ziering, all executive producers on the new show – as versions of themselves trying to get a remake of 90210 off the ground.

Discovery Channel’s new Sunday-night miniseries SERENGETI is unusual. This is not because it is set in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, Africa, which contains large populations of many of the continent’s most notable wildlife; the network has aired many documentaries made there. However, SERENGETI is not a documentary, but rather a drama, created by Simon Fuller and directed by award-winning wildlife documentarian John Downer, both of whom are producers on the miniseries. Downer shot footage of real Serengeti lions, elephants, hyenas, baboons and other animals going about their lives, which has been edited into a storyline, narrated in the […]Read On »
