The CW Won't Screen '90210' for Critics
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- The CW and CBS Paramount Network Television just released this statement:

"The CW and our studio partner CBS Paramount Network Television have made the strategic marketing decision not to screen "90210" for any media in advance of its premiere. We're not hiding anything . . . simply keeping a lid on 90210 until 9.02, riding the curiosity and anticipation into premiere night, and letting all our constituents see it at the same time."

Here's the official description of the show's two-hour premiere ("We're Not In Kansas Anymore" and "The Jet Set"), released this morning:

"KELLY TAYLOR, BRENDA WALSH AND THE PEACH PIT ARE BACK, ALONG WITH ROB ESTES, LORI LOUGHLIN AND A NEW GENERATION, IN A SPECIAL TWO-HOUR PREMIERE Harry Wilson (Rob Estes, Womens Murder Club), new principal of West Beverly Hills High School, returns from Kansas to his childhood home of Beverly Hills with his wife Debbie (Lori Loughlin, In Case of Emergency), their daughter Annie (Shenae Grimes, Degrassi: The Next Generation) and adopted son Dixon, (Tristan Wilds, The Wire) to care for Harrys mother, former television star Tabitha Wilson (Jessica Walter, Arrested Development). On their first day at West Bev, Annie and Dixon encounter Ethan (Dustin Milligan, Runaway), the star lacrosse player she met a few summers ago; Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord, Nip/Tuck), the spoiled rich girl whose sole focus is her Sweet Sixteen party; Silver (Jessica Stroup, Prom Night), the free-spirited girl who later gossips about Annie on her blog, and Navid (Michael Steger, Criminal Minds), editor of Blaze News. When Naomi fails to complete an assignment, English teacher Ryan Matthews (Ryan Eggold, Dirt) and guidance counselor Kelly Taylor (special guest star Jennie Garth, Beverly Hills, 90210), bring the problem to Harry, who quickly realizes that keeping secrets about his past is going to be impossible. Dixon impresses his peers when he tries out for the lacrosse team, but has to deal with jealous teammates who will stop at nothing to sabotage him. Annie misses the deadline to audition for the spring musical but sparks fly when she meets the leading actor Ty (guest star Adam Gregory), one of the most popular students on campus. Ty impresses Annie by flying her to San Francisco for dinner in his private jet, but Annie fails to mention her plans to her parents. Special guest star Shannen Doherty reprises her role as Brenda Walsh. Mark Piznarski directed the first episode, written by Rob Thomas and Gabe Sachs & Jeff Judah (#101). Wendey Stanzler directed the second episode, written by Gabe Sachs & Jeff Judah (#102)."

The news means that our "first look" at the pilot script back in June (click here to read it) - which may or may not be the final draft - is all the detail we'll have on the premiere until September 2.
