ABC Family has added two new half-hour comedies to its roster, both of which will debut sometime this year. Mystery Girls will star 90210 alum Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth, and Spelling and Garth will also be involved as executive producers. Young & Hungry is from actress/singer Ashley Tisdale who executive produces the new comedy series starring Emily Osment.
ABC Family says both shows will film in LA in the near future.
“It’s great to start the new year and my tenure at ABC Family with the pickup of these two funny original series,” stated ABC Family President Tom Ascheim. “ABC Family’s comedy lineup continues to resonate with our audience and I’m thrilled to boost that momentum by adding Mystery Girls and Young & Hungry, which are sure to become fan favorites.”
“We are excited to expand our comedy brand with two new series that build on our already solid comedy block of hits, Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy,” said Kate Juergens, Chief Creative Officer and Executive Vice President of Programming and Development, ABC Family. “Viewers are excited to see Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth back on television together again, and will fall in love with Young & Hungry star Emily Osment in these comedies that bring us fun, new characters with which to laugh out loud.”

Mystery Girls Plot:
Mystery Girls starring Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth follows two former detective TV show starlets brought back together by a real-life mystery. Charlie Contour (Garth) is a suburban housewife and mother, while Holly Hamilton (Spelling) longs for her glory days in the 90’s when she was on television. Both of their lives are disrupted when Nick (Miguel Pinzon), a witness to a crime and a ‘Mystery Girls’ fanatic, will only speak to the infamous duo, and the former friends must reunite and put their TV crime-solving skills to the test.
Young & Hungry Details:
In Young & Hungry, two worlds collide when Josh (Jonathan Sadowski), a wealthy young tech entrepreneur, meets Gabi (Osment), a feisty young food blogger, looking to be his personal chef. Gabi is desperate for the job and must prove herself, mostly to Josh’s aide (Rex Lee), who prefers a famous chef for the job. When Josh enlists Gabi to prepare a romantic meal for him and his girlfriend, the dinner goes awry and Gabi finds herself in a very awkward position. With the help of her best friend Sofia (Aimee Carrero) and Josh’s housekeeper (Kym Whitley), Gabi turns a difficult situation into an opportunity for employment and maybe even love.
