Fall TV Preview

Exclusive: 90210 Takes a Swig of Brandy

Brandy’s heading for the Hills! 

The actress-singer-reality star is joining 90210 for a major Season 4 arc, TVLine has learned exclusively.

She’ll play Marissa Jackson-Lewis, a charismatic young politician running for congress in California against Teddy’s (Trevor Donovan) conservative uncle. “She’s a cross between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama,” notes a source close to the show. “She’s inspirational but with a drive to get the job done.” To that end, Marissa hires Silver (Jessica Stroup) to create a video campaign to reach the youth vote.

Brandy, who earlier this year guest-starred in four episodes of Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva, is slated to make her 90210 debut in October.

90210 returns Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 9/8 c.

  • So Teddy’s uncle is going to be on the show, but Teddy isn’t?

    • Well Teddy is going to be in at least 5 episodes so maybe this political arc will end around the same time as Teddy’s arc ends.

      Does anyone know if its possible for Teddy to be back for more than 5 episodes or are the 5 episodes set in stone?

      • With 24 eps, it looks like Teddy will be hanging around for more than 5 eps. ;)

    • She’s already recorded them, but they haven’t aired yet.

      • That makes sense. I was wondering how I’d missed those four episodes – especially during the marathon they’d had before the new season started!

  • A cross between Hilary Clinton and Barrack Obama? Yeah, that was obvious.

  • Ugh… She’s just terrible!

  • First of all you all possibly and must not be following her career. Drop Dead Diva the new season with her featured hasn’t aired just yet. To clear up all this aggressively bashing against her. So you all can kick rocks and fall back. #TeamBrandy

  • So confused… wasn’t Trevor let go from the show?

  • Trevor was let go. He will appear in 5 episodes in season 4.
