Lifetime has offered up its first look at “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.” The film promises to take viewers behind-the-scenes of the hugely popular Saturday morning staple that created stars out of Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffany-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez.
While the cast was all smiles and laughs during their on-screen adventures at Bayside High School, the first clip from the film paints a very different picture. The actors portraying the young cast spend virtually the entirety of a photo shoot bickering and fighting.
As a look into what the film could be like, this clip doesn’t offer much. But it does promise plenty of fireworks as these differing personalities continue to clash while “Saved by the Bell” became a cultural phenomenon during its original run from 1989 to 1993.
The original cast is brought to life by new young actors, including Dylan Everett as Gosselaar, Alyssa Lynch as Thiessen, Tiera Skovbye as Berkley, Julian Works as Lopez, Sam Kindseth as Dustin Diamond, and Taylor Russell McKenzie as Lark Voorhies.
“The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” airs at 9/8c on Monday, September 1.
