TV Roundup: School’s in Session for 90210 Spinoff!
• Same zip code, same location: The CW’s 90210 spinoff is being filmed at Torrance High School, the same high school where the original series was shot.

• VH1’s Celebrity Rehab is filling up. Sean Stewart, the troubled son of Rod Stewart, is reportedly the latest “celeb” to join the cast that already includes Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss and rocker Sebastian Bach. If he cleans up his act, maybe he’s got a shot on MTV’s Rock the Cradle.
