The Hollywood Reporter- Lifetime has set The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, centered on the off-camera experiences of the six young stars of the 1990s comedy, for a Labor Day premiere.

Premiering Monday, Sept. 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story promises to expose the challenges of growing up under the public scrutiny while trying to maintain a squeaky clean image of their characters on- and off-screen.

Cast by Saved by the Bell’s original casting directorRobin Lippin, the television movie stars Dylan Everett (Degrassi: The Next Generation) as Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Sam Kindseth (Shameless) as Dustin DiamondJulian Works (Paranormal Activity) as Mario Lopez, Alyssa Lynch as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Tiera Skovbye (Supernatural) as Elizabeth Berkley and Taylor Russell McKenzie (Blink) as Lark Voorhies.

Looks like someone at Lifetime decided that they wanted win a buttload of Emmys and put this gem together.  I think anyone that grew up with this show would love to know what happened behind the scenes.  Obviously all the sex, drug use, and partying will get the headlines.  But I want to know what was the deal with Max.  I still don’t understand how a bad-joke-telling magician made it onto a show about high schoolers getting into wild and fun situations.  Dude had to have scandalous pics of a bunch of NBC executives.

Kelly Kapowski.  Never Forget.

PS- Screech and Mr. Belding spoke at my college back in the day.  Screech was the slimiest dude I’ve ever met, while Belding was the god damn man.  Not sure why I felt like sharing that, but F Dustin Diamond.
