Lifetime to Air 'Saved By the Bell' Tell-All Movie
By Antoinette Bueno
Should the original Saved By the Bell cast be worried?
According to BuzzFeed, Lifetime is producing The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, which focuses on what really went down behind the scenes of the beloved '90s show. Hours of brand-new interviews were conducted for the film -- independent of Dustin Diamond's scandalous tell-all book Behind the Bell -- which is scheduled to air on Labor Day, September 1.
Diamond memorably claimed in his 2009 book that cast members Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley and Lark Voorhies were sleeping together, with some even dabbling in drugs.
This being a Lifetime movie, one couldn't imagine the new film not exploring these topics.
The cast of the new film includes Dylan Everett as Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Julian Works as Mario Lopez, Sam Kindseth as Dustin Diamond, Alyssa Lynch as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Tiera Skovbye as Elizabeth Berkley and Taylor Russell McKenzie as Lark Voorhies.
