Turns out Jennie Garth isn’t the only writer in the family! The 37-year-old Beverly Hills, 90210 alum and her Twilight hunk hubby, Peter Facinelli, are teaming up for a new TV movie that Peter wrote.
Peter penned the script, which is being turned into a film, starring his wife, for America’s Hallmark channel.
Jennie can’t wait to star in his film. “He’s a wonderful writer and we’re finally getting one of his projects off the ground. I’m going to be starring in it, so that’s exciting,” Jennie says. “It’s about an actor inside the Barney suit – a giant stuffed animated kids character – and he meets a woman who changes his perspective on things. It’s a sweet love story with no big moral message; it’s pure entertainment.”
So will Dr. Cullen make an appearance in the film? “Peter really wants to be in it and I keep saying, ‘No, we shouldn’t work together!’ It’s still up in the air so we’ll see. My husband is super busy and he’s on fire right now. He’s got two other projects that he wrote getting off the ground so my household is buzzing right now!”
Jennie and Peter are parents to daughters Luca, 12, Lola, 7, and Fiona, 3.
