"Unauthorised Saved By The Bell Story" Features Plenty Of Teenage Drama
Want to see teenagers fight it out? Watch "The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story".
If you’re into watching teenagers argue, then the new trailer for Lifetime’s unauthorized Saved By The Bell movie might have something for you. Other than that, even diehard SbtB fans might find this a little boring and uneventful, but here’s a recap anyway.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar - some of the stars found success after the end of Saved by the Bell.
The clip – it’s not really a trailer – shows the six Saved by the Bell kids – Mario Lopez, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffany-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkeley, Dustin Diamonds and Lark Voorhies – breaking going from passive aggression to a full-blown fight within the space of a few minutes during a photoshoot. All are portrayed by scripted actors, of course and all have equally cringe-worthy lines, but that’s just what you’d expect from a Lifetime movie. Check out the trailer over on The Wrap.
The movie will portray the widening rift between the show’s teenage stars as Saved by the Bell rises in popularity and turns them into household names. The film is directed by Jason Lapeye from a script by Ron McGee and will follow the teenagers during Saved by the Bell’s original run between 1989 and 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. If you’re in the mood for a bit of nostalgia, the film airs on Lifetime at 9/8c on Monday, September 1.
Mario Lopez played Slater on the iconic 90s show.
