So, the 90210 reboot. As it turns out, the crew is not be raking in as much as one might expect. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jason Priestley, Brian Austin Green and Ian Ziering’s contracts pay them $70,000 per episode for the reboot.
That means they’ll pull in around $420,000 for the first season.
Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth earn an extra $15,000 per episode; they are credited as co-creators. Priestley also earned an extra $46,000 for directing an episode.
The relatively low salaries are especially notable considering 90210 has been the summer’s highest-rated series debut. Their salaries also pale in comparison to those of the four stars of Will & Grace, who snagged $250,000 per episode, and the $1.25 million an episode Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are earning for the forthcoming The Morning Show on Apple.
Spelling for one, could use the cash. She and her husband Dean McDermott owe $219,000 to City National Bank stemming from a lawsuit judgment, and she was recently forced to fork over her contracts in the battle.
