[adrotate banner=”1″]Just when you thought you were doomed to fail, you will find yourself saved by the bell again, as Lifetime is bringing us The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story! Lifetime has secured the Iron Throne of schlock tv movies, and now is just showing off with this latest announcement!
The film will feature the six most famous cast members, thus skipping the whole Good Morning, Miss Bliss year and jumping right into everything we know and love whenever “Real 90s kids” trends on Twitter. The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story was cast by the same casting director who cast the original series, Robin Lippin. The actors are:
Dylan Everett as Mark-Paul Gosselaar
Sam Kindseth as Dustin Diamond
Julian Works as Mario Lopez
Alyssa Lynch as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen
Tiera Skovbye as Elizabeth Berkley
Taylor Russell McKenzie as Lark Voorhies
They will deal with the pressure of being squeaky clean role models while also having drug-fueled sex orgies (according to Dustin Diamond’s autobiography) If they do even 10% of the things on this list (I know that Mario Lopez rapist story did make American tabloid tv shows because I remember it airing), the film will be amazing and awesome. And maybe it will lead to Saved by the Bell: The New New Class!
Hopefully they do nice parallels to actual episodes, including Jessie being addicted to caffeine pills and Screech dating Tori Spelling. The public will demand that! After all, how are we going to get more gifs for Tumblr if they fail to deliver?
The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story premieres September 1st on Lifetime, and damn right I’ll be watching!
