Tori Spelling plans to join the TV streaming wars, via Vizio


Tori Spelling’s upcoming TV series will take her from the luxurious streets of Beverly Hills to the digital lanes forged by smart TVs.

Best known for her stints on various editions of “Beverly Hills 90210,” Spelling will lead a new streaming series that will feature her showing tips for cooking and entertaining. “@Home with Tori” features Spelling offering tips and tricks for cooking, cooking and entertaining as she prepares dishes from local foods. She’ll be joined over ten 30-minute episodes by family members, celebrity guests and expert chefs, including Patti Stranger from Bravo’s TV series “The Millionaire Matchmaker.” The series will be offered through Vizio WatchFree Plus, the ad-supported free streaming service made available on Vizio’s smart TVs.

“To say I’m thrilled to be filming a series with my friends and family from the comfort of my own home would be an understatement,” Spelling said, in a prepared statement. “From cooking to entertainment, we hope to inspire viewers to create memorable experiences from home. We are going to have a lot of fun and I am delighted that Vizio audience will be with us for the trip. The show is currently in production and is set to air on WatchFree Plus in May 2022.

The new series is produced by Jacob Nasser, who recently produced the Hallmark series “Second Chance at Love” and the “Twice Bitten” program for BET Plus.

“We were thrilled to work with Tori Spelling and Jacob Nasser to create these episodes that Vizio audiences will love it,” said Greg Barnard, director of content acquisition at Vizio and an executive producer of the series. Based on data from Inscape, a data service that tracks the content people watch on certain smart TVs, Vizio believes its users are drawn to shows about cooking, entertainment and doing things themselves. “This show invites audiences to join Tori and special guests at her home for an exclusive entertainment experience and is another great example of how we continue to deliver programming that is unique, relevant and available only on Vizio.”

The series represents the first original production from MyTime Movie Network, a group of streaming channels that feature programming aimed at female audiences.
