Shannen Doherty joins new online series

 According to The Hollywood Reporter, actors Shannen Doherty (Beverly Hills 90210) and Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes) are the latest TV stars to sign up for a new Lifetime online series called Suite 7, in which Doherty will not only star but also direct an episode. The show would follow a new couple each week who will check into the fictional 'Suite 7' to discuss their personal issues. The web series will consist of a seven-episode first season.

 Doherty and Ventimiglia are the latest of a number of popular faces that will check in Suite 7, including Damages star Craig Bierko and a former co-star of Doherty's in 90210, Brian Austin Green.

 Wilson Cleveland (The Temp Life) who also collaborated on the series was thrilled with the 90210 reunion: “Shannen [Doherty] directed the episode I wrote and suggested Brian Austin Green. The idea of bringing those two together on a project for the first time since 90210 was a total fan-gasm for me. I was a bit of a 90210 fan, and they had a blast working together again. Brian is so ridiculously funny in this and Shannen is a truly brilliant director.”

 The show will debut on December 1 and viewers will be able to watch the show on popular streaming websites like and Hulu.

 This project certainly sounds interesting! Other big names such as Joss Whedon have already tried the online thing (Dr. Horrible) with great success so who knows if this will become the new trend in modern day entertainment.

 Would you be checking in Suite 7 when it premieres? Are you looking forward to more online series in the future? Sound off in the comments!
