Jennie Garth Exits CBS’ Girl


Jennie Garth has departed from CBS’ comedy pilot “My Best Friend’s Girl,” raising speculation about a possible stint on the CW’s “Beverly Hills, 90210” spinoff, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Kristin Booth will replace Garth as the female lead in “Girl,” while Jerry O’Connell has signed on to star opposite Niecy Nash in the Fox comedy pilot “The Inn.”

“Girl,” from Sony TV, revolves around two best friends whose relationship becomes complicated when one (Tim Peper) starts dating the ex-wife of the other (Josh Cooke). Garth was to play the ex-wife.

“Inn,” from 20th TV, Reveille and Principato-Young, is a multicamera comedy described as “Upstairs/Downstairs” set at a hip New York hotel. O’Connell will play the hotel’s GM.
