Production will commence on both series in Los Angeles in early 2014, and both will premiere in 2014.

ABC Family President, Tom Ascheim said, "It's great to start the new year and my tenure at ABC Family with the pickup of these two funny original series. ABC Family's comedy lineup continues to resonate with our audience and I'm thrilled to boost that momentum by adding 'Mystery Girls' and 'Young & Hungry,' which are sure to become fan favorites."

"We are excited to expand our comedy brand with two new series that build on our already solid comedy block of hits, 'Melissa & Joey' and 'Baby Daddy,'" said Kate Juergens, Chief Creative Officer and Executive Vice President of Programming and Development, ABC Family. "Viewers are excited to see Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth back on television together again, and will fall in love with 'Young & Hungry' star Emily Osment in these comedies that bring us fun, new characters with which to laugh out loud."

"Mystery Girls," starring Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth follows two former detective TV show starlets brought back together by a real-life mystery. Charlie Contour (Garth) is a suburban housewife and mother, while Holly Hamilton (Spelling) longs for her glory days in the 90's when she was on television. Both of their lives are disrupted when Nick (Pinzon), a witness to a crime and a 'Mystery Girls' fanatic, will only speak to the infamous duo, and the former friends must reunite and put their TV crime-solving skills to the test. Tori Spelling ("Beverly Hills, 90210," "Tori & Dean: Inn Love"), Jennie Garth ("Beverly Hills, 90210," "What I Like About You") and newcomer Miguel Pinzon ("A New York Love Story") star in the series. Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth and Maggie Malina ("Single Ladies") will serve as executive producers. The story is by Tori Spelling and Shepard Boucher ("Men at Work"). The pilot was written by Shepard Boucher.

In "Young & Hungry," two worlds collide when Josh (Sadowski), a wealthy young tech entrepreneur, meets Gabi (Osment), a feisty young food blogger, looking to be his personal chef. Gabi is desperate for the job and must prove herself, mostly to Josh's aide (Lee), who prefers a famous chef for the job. When Josh enlists Gabi to prepare a romantic meal for him and his girlfriend, the dinner goes awry and Gabi finds herself in a very awkward position. With the help of her best friend Sofia (Carrero) and Josh's housekeeper (Whitley), Gabi turns a difficult situation into an opportunity for employment and maybe even love. "Young & Hungry" stars Emily Osment ("Hannah Montana"), Jonathan Sadowski ("$#*! My Dad Says"), Rex Lee ("Entourage"), Aimee Carrero ("Blue Lagoon: The Awakening") and Kym Whitley ("Animal Practice") with Annie Potts ("GCB," "Designing Women") as a recurring guest star. The series is executive produced by Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum ("Two and a Half Men"), CBS Television Studios, Relativity Television, Jessica Rhoades ("Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure") and Ashley Tisdale ("High School Musical"). The pilot was written by David Holden ("Accidentally on Purpose"). Gabi Moskowitz, a San Francisco based food blogger, of BrokeAssGourmet.com, contributed to the development of this project.
