NBC Orders Craig Robinson's Sitcom, ABC Family Picks Up Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth's Comedy


'Mr. Robinson' starring the 'Office' alum has received a six-episode order, while 'Mystery Girls' which reunites the former '90210' co-stars is slated to premiere later this year.

Craig Robinson is returning to NBC after "The Office" wrapped up last summer. The network has given a six-episode series order to "Mr. Robinson", which will be headlined by the Darryl Philbin of the canceled mockumentary.

The revamped single-camera comedy, which has been in development at the Peacock for more than a year, follows a musician who gets a job as a music teacher at a middle school. "While teaching the kids everything from rock to the blues, he simultaneously learns how to put the school's rules to the test," so NBC describes the character.

Former "The Office" executive producer Greg Daniels was initially on board the project but is no longer involved now. Mark Cullen and Robb Cullen will serve as showrunners and executive producers. Howard Klein and Mark Schulman are additionally set to executive produce.

In another new series pick-up report, ABC Family has added two new original series to its comedy slate. The network has ordered "Mystery Girls" and "Young & Hungry" to series. Both shows will start production in Los Angeles soon for a premiere later this year.

"Mystery Girls" stars and is executive produced by "90210" alumnae Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth. They will play two former detective TV show starlets who are brought back together by a real-life mystery.

Meanwhile, in "Young & Hungry" from executive producer Ashley Tisdale, two worlds collide when a wealthy young tech entrepreneur meets a feisty young food blogger, looking to be his personal chef. Emily Osment takes one of the lead roles.
