Saved By The Bell The Movie?

When I first read those words I had visions of Mark-Paul Gosselaar reprising his role as Zach Morris, but what are fans of the Saturday morning series really getting?

As Buzzfeed first reported last week a Lifetime movie about behind-the-scenes happenings at Bayside High is being made and could give fans a whole new perspective on one of their favorite shows growing up.

The movie is going to be based on Dustin Diamond‘s 2009 memoir titled Behind the Bell. If you’ve never read it, the book is full of stories about on set hook-ups, cast member drug use and other similar shady happenings. But producers didn’t just take his word for it. New interviews were conducted for what Lifetime is calling The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story.

Not sure how the old cast members feel about this, but the show’s original casting director must approve. He is also doing the casting for Lifetime’s movie and has apparently already found actors to play Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Diamond, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, and Lark Voorhies. Check out the cast below.

Lifetime has already set a release date for  The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story too! Look for it to air on Labor Day, September 1st at 9pm.
