The Lifetime Saved by the Bell movie dropped a preview trailer!

Saved by the Bell Lifetime Unauthorized
Unfortunately, the trailer is on…BUZZFEED! Whatever barfo deal they worked out with Buzzfeed that means I have to go freaking Buzzfeed to look at an unembeddable trailer is annoying. But I do get bonus smugness because the Buzzfeed “article” is shorter than most of my news articles and mostly copy/pasted. But then I lose the smugness when I realize the writer got paid for this crap and is probably getting bonus pay thanks to all the links for views, including the one here. Oh well, fuck that guy. But what is important is this preview shows the cast of Bayside High HATES each other, and that’s awesome. It’s also all set to Bell Biv DeVoe’s Poison, which is also awesome.

We got girls being catty, girls being flirty, competitive pushups, Screech calling Slater a “prick”, Mark-Paul Gosselaar not giving a crap, and executives making snide remarks about hormones. It’s awesome. Have I mentioned that? Thunderstorms and lightning and hail couldn’t keep me from watching this!

The cast:
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

It’s directed by Jason Lapeyre (who made I Declare War), with a teleplay by Ron McGee (Girl vs. Monster).

The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story airs September 1st on Lifetime!

Lifetime wins with The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story!

Saved by the Bell Lifetime
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!
