Lifetime is preparing to once again take us behind-the-scenes of a beloved television series and show us the horrifying truth behind the production with a brand new tell-all movie about Melrose Place.

The cable network is currently developing The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story, which will detail the primetime soap's origins and development into a cultural phenomenon, "Drawing from true stories and anecdotes from interviews with the original cast and crew," a rep for the network told Us Weekly.

Melrose Place, a spin-off of Beverly Hills, 90210 (which is also getting the Lifetime treatment), debuted on Fox in July 1992 and ran for seven seasons until it went off the air in 1999. The series focused on the dramatic lives of the residents of a Los Angeles apartment complex called Melrose Place, and their intersecting lives and romantic entanglements.

During its seven seasons, there were many different cast members and the show became infamous for its increasingly bizarre and soapy storylines. So The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story will likely have some great material to work with when it comes to behind-the-scenes conflicts.

No premiere date has been set, and no information on the film's cast has been announced.

All we can hope for is a behind-the-scenes look at the writers’ room when they came up with one of the show's most insane and memorable reveals.


Lifetime has found a lot of success with their unauthorized tell-alls. In August, Lifetime will air The Unauthorized Full House Story, and is also working on an unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 movie.

Last year the channel did their best to ruin our childhoods with The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story. Check out the video below for a look at their Saved By the Bell tell-all that made us look back at the classic sitcom in a much different light.
