Tori Spelling and her actor husband Dean McDermott will make the move from performers to proprietors, by opening their own bed & breakfast in a new reality series.

Giving new meaning to the term luxury accommodations, the McDermotts will leave their Hollywood lifestyle behind for the picturesque wine vineyards of southern California to invest Spelling's entire life savings and her $800,000 inheritance into opening an inn.
Partners in marriage and now in business, the couple will give viewers an intimate look at their new life as they try to balance the challenges and obstacles they face as first-time innkeepers with the joys and stresses of preparing for their first baby.
