She’s not particularly "country," but former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Jennie Garth is headed to CMT. Deadline reports that Garth and her family will document their move to a seven-acre farm on an upcoming docu-reality series.
The actress, along with husband (and “Twilight” star) Peter Facinelli and their three daughters, will move from Los Angeles to central California. There she'll attempt a country lifestyle, away from the pressures of Hollywood (while starring in a TV show, we might add).
Eight half-hour episodes of “I Love Jennie” (a working title) have been ordered.
Jennie’s not the only former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant to get a new series. CMT also ordered “Melissa and Tye: A New Reality” (also a working title), which stars Melissa Rycroft (of “The Bachelor” fame). While Jennie Garth is moving her family out of Los Angeles, Melissa is moving in.
The Texas native, who has a baby daughter and is married to her hometown boyfriend, will attempt to manage a long-distance relationship while chasing stardom in Tinseltown.
Both shows premiere in April.
