TV show description:
This comedy series revolves around the former stars of a fictional 1990s TV show — also called Mystery Girls — who are reunited because a real-life mystery.
Holly Hamilton (Tori Spelling) laments the fact that she used to be famous and on a hit TV show. Some 14 years after the show ended, Holly is desperate to regain her former fame.
Her former co-star, practical Charlie Contour (Jennie Garth) is now a suburban housewife whose life is filled with juggling her husband, daughter and household duties. She has little patience for anything that takes her away from that life.
Gay and vibrant Nick Diaz (Miguel Pinzon) has just moved from Ohio and has already witnessed a murder in Los Angeles. A super-fan of the old Mystery Girls TV show, he refuses to give a statement to anyone but his two favorite “detectives” so the cop in charge of the investigation arranges for that to happen.
This reunites the former co-stars and Holly comes up with the crazy scheme to partner with Charlie to open a real detective agency. Charlie’s against it until sees that the new venture may help up her cool factor with her daughter.
Having saved her TV money, Holly’s able to afford the pricey rent in a Beverly Hills office. Enthusiastic and excitable, Nick persuades Holly (who’s totally on board) and Charlie (who has serious doubts that he’s qualified) to hire him as their assistant at the new detective agency.
Episode #10 — The Killer Returns
Nick freaks out when he learns that Zanucci (Anthony Bonaventura), the murderer in the mob hit he witnessed, has struck again. Worried about his safety, Nick must admit that the mobster knows he saw everything and can now find him, thanks to the new Mystery Girls commercial.
Holly and Charlie find Zanucci at a local spa and turn him over to the cops, confident that Nick is now safe and Holly can concentrate on her efforts to snag Detective Duane (Ryan McPartlin). But when the detectives return to the office, they discover the case isn’t quite solved and they must act quickly in order to save their loved ones. Meanwhile, when Charlie’s husband Michael (Adam Mayfield) hears she’s hunting a killer, his concern for her safety prompts her to consider a different path.
