“Everywhere you look, everywhere you go,” the wave of ‘90s nostalgia is bigger than ever -- which makes it the perfect time for three of the era’s brightest sitcom stars to team up for a new venture.
Jodie Sweetin (Full House), Beverley Mitchell (7th Heaven), and Christine Lakin (Step by Step) have signed on to star in “Hollywood Darlings,” a new reality show on Pop TV. The “unscripted docu-comedy series” will follow the three women as they navigate the entertainment industry while juggling their roles as wives, mothers, and businesswomen. Deadline reports that other celebrities will make special appearances throughout the eight-episode initial season, meaning we can probably expect some alumni from the women’s respective former shows to pop up here and there.
Sweetin, Mitchell, and Lakin said in a joint statement, “Our childhood characters prepared us for the roles of our lives… literally. There really aren’t words to describe the way we grew up and the bond we share, so we decided that we wanted to give a glimpse into our unique sisterhood. Our fans have always been at the heart of it all, and we love that we have found a home on Pop. We’re so excited to go on this journey and take people inside our lives, post-childhood fame.”
Sweetin has been in the midst of a career resurgence lately, following the premiere of Netflix’s Full House reboot, Fuller House, which has already been picked up for a second season. She’s also slated to appear on the upcoming season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Mitchell, meanwhile, had a recurring role on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager from 2011-13. Finally, Lakin has been impressively busy since Step by Step wrapped its blank season run in 1998 -- she’s had guest roles on comedies like Modern Family and The League, and has also lent her voice to Family Guy over the years.
