Lifetime going behind-the-scenes of Saved By the Bell for “tell-all” TV movie

21 June 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

American television network Lifetime has announced that it is developing a TV movie that promises to deliver a behind-the-scenes expose of the popular 90s teen sitcom Saved By the Bell.

The film – which is titled The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story – will detail the young cast members’ efforts to maintain their squeaky-clean image whilst indulging in sex, drugs and other scandals off-camera. It is said to be loosely based on Dustin Diamond’s autobiography Behind the Bell.

Featuring in the cast of The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story are Dylan Everett as Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack), Sam Kindseth as Dustin Diamond (Screech), Julian Works as Mario Lopez (Slater), Alyssa Lynch as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Kelly), Tiera Skovbye as Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie) and Taylor Russell as Lark Voorhies (Lisa). The actors have been selected by Robin Lippin, the casting director who enlisted the original actors for Saved By the Bell.

7 Bits of Behind-the-Scenes Dirt That Have to Be in Lifetime’s Saved by the Bell Movie

20 June 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When we first heard that Lifetime was making The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, our minds went to that other unauthorized story about Bayside, Behind the Bell, written by Dustin Diamond, who played Screech. A penniless, post-sex-tape Diamond promised a “tell-all,” but what we really ended up getting was a burn book, with Diamond taking pot shots against everyone who had wronged him. Still, there are some salacious stories that we’d love to see make their way into Lifetime’s version. Here are seven things that we insist appear onscreen.1. The sex quadrilateralHere’s a plotline that we’d like to see make its way into the show: Tiffani Amber Thiessen's (Kelly Kapowski) real-life boyfriend Eddie Garcia guest-starred on the show as Johnny Dakota, a pretty boy who was at Bayside to film an anti-drug PSA. On set, though, Tiffani was shuttling between Mario Lopez (A.C. »

40 Reasons Kelly Kapowski Is the Queen of Cool

20 June 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's been more than 20 years since Saved by the Bell went off the air, but Bayside's best cheerleader, Kelly Kapowski, is still No. 1 in our hearts. Soon, we'll be seeing her back on the small screen - well, sort of - because a new Saved by the Bell TV movie is set to air on Lifetime later this year. The movie, called The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, will focus on behind-the-scenes drama between the cast members. With the news in mind, we're looking back on the era of pay phones and scrunchies. Tiffani Thiessen's character Kelly shows how to be both a girl's girl and the object of affection for, well, every guy who ever walked into The Max. With a look at her dance moves, her signature style, and her most adorable moments with Zack Morris, take a look at 40 reasons why Kelly Kapowski still reigns as the queen of cool. »

Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Movie to Premiere on Lifetime

20 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Lifetime will premiere an unauthorized TV movie for the classic 1990s kid series Saved By The Bell. The movie will focus on the off-camera experiences of the six young stars of the afternoon sitcom. According to THR, the film "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." 

Having grown up watching Saved By The Bell, it will be really interesting to see what behind-the-scenes stories they tell in this thing. I imagine there was a lot more drama with these actors off-screen than on. 

The movie was cast by the original casting director of the series, Robin Lippin. The TV 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, »

‘Saved By The Bell’ To Be Story Of Lifetime

20 June 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was a staple fixture of the kids’ schedules throughout the Nineties, then became a topic of notoriety due to the steamy exploits of star Dustin “Screech” Diamond. That mix of nostalgia and astonishment is about to be resurrected, with Lifetime broadcasting The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story, a telemovie delving behind the scenes in September. It’s not clear whether the film will utilize Diamond’s tell-all account Behind The Bell with its boasts of multiple sexual conquests, but the project has been cast by one name from the old days, Robin Lippin. Sam Kindseth (Shameless USA) is playing the role of the teen actor turned salacious scribe.

Running from 1989 – 93 in its original form, the show emanated (somewhat surprisingly) from a flop school sitcom starring Hayley Mills. It made household names of the cast for sometimes infamous reasons, with alumni including Elizabeth Berkley (Showgirls) and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (White Collar »

Lifetime to Air 'Saved By the Bell' Tell-All Movie

20 June 2014 7:56 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Get ready for a new scandalous Saved by the Bell movie.

Should the original Saved By the Bell cast be worried?

According to BuzzFeed, Lifetime is producing The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, which focuses on what really went down behind the scenes of the beloved '90s show. Hours of brand-new interviews were conducted for the film -- independent of Dustin Diamond's scandalous tell-all book Behind the Bell -- which is scheduled to air on Labor Day, September 1.

Video: The Secret of 'Saved by the Bell'

Diamond memorably claimed in his 2009 book that cast members Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley and Lark Voorhies were sleeping together, with some even dabbling in drugs.

This being a Lifetime movie, one couldn't imagine the new film not exploring these topics.

The cast of the new film includes Dylan Everett as Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Julian Works as Mario Lopez, Sam Kindseth as [link »

'Saved by the Bell' Biopic Coming to Lifetime, First Cast Photo

19 June 2014 7:02 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you were born in the late '70s, any time in the '80s and probably up to late-'90s you're aware of the television show "Saved by the Bell". I remember seeing it when it first aired and I think I was still watching it in my dorm room in college, probably on TBS with back-to-back episodes, you know, in-between all that studying I was doing. Fans of the show remember Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and his giant cell phone, Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski and who would ever forget the episode where Elizabeth Berkeley as Jessie Spano took drugs so she could study all night long. Then you have Mario Lopez who went on to a career in entertainment reporting, Dustin Diamond whom I believe was doing porn or something last I checked and Lark Voorhies who may be the one to have pretty much completely dropped »

Too bad a bell can’t save them now.

Five years after Saved by the Bell’s Dustin Diamond wrote Behind the Bell, his tell-all book that revealed secrets of the Bell set, EW has confirmed that Lifetime is airing The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story. Although the project is completely separate from Diamond’s book, which included accusations of threesomes, drugs, and more, the new television movie will focus in on the same subject matter: The on-set life of the hit series that ran from 1989-1993. According to a press release, the film “delves into the experiences of »

‘Saved by the Bell’ Movie to Air on Lifetime

19 June 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fans of Bayside High School should be so excited for Labor Day.

Lifetime has set that Monday as its premiere date for “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.” The TV movie promises to go behind the scenes of the popular Saturday morning teen soap that made household names out of Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley and others.

Fittingly, original series casting director Robin Lippin was tapped to find modern-day equivalents in Dylan Everett (who will play Gosselaar and his on-screen persona, Zack Morris), Sam Kindseth (Dustin Diamond/Screech), Julian Works (Lopez/A.C. Slater), Alyssa Lynch (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen/Kelly Kapowski), Tiera Skovbye (Berkley/Jessie Sapano) and Taylor Russell McKenzie (Lark Voorhies/Lisa Turtle).

“The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” is produced by Front Street Pictures and Ringaling Productions Ltd. for broadcast on Lifetime. Exec producers are Harvey Kahn (“Flowers in the Attic”) and Stephen Bulka (“Dear Mom, »

Lifetime, the network that's bringing you a controversial Aaliyah biopic starring Zendaya Coleman, is wowing us again with another loony project: an unauthorized backstage look at NBC's beloved 1989-93 teen series "Saved By the Bell."  "The Unauthorized 'Saved by the Bell' Story" is based on star Dustin Diamond's tell-all "Behind the Bell," which detailed sinister backstage goings-on at the show. According to him, there was a fair amount of experimentation with drugs and even some sexual dalliances, including threeways. Lifetime apparently also conducted hours of interviews for this project. Check out the cast: -"Blink" star Taylor Russell McKenzie as Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) -"Degrassi: The Next Generation" star Dylan Everett as Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris) -Newcomer Alyssa Lynch as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) -Julian Works of "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones" as Mario Lopez (A.C.

'The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story' Will Unfold on Lifetime

19 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Inspired by the salacious stories revealed by series star Dustin Diamond, Lifetime is making a movie about the behind the scenes action on "Saved by the Bell." Depending on your penchant for '90s nostalgia and cheesy teen TV programming, you're either going to be -- like Jessie Spano -- so excited, or so scared. (Or maybe a little of both.)

"The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story" will be in the same vein as Diamond's 2009 memoir, "Behind the Bell," which recounted that cast members were sleeping with each other -- even having threesomes -- and doing drugs throughout the series' run. All except Diamond, of course, who really personified his nerd alter ego, Screech, in those days. (Cue sad violin music for Diamond.)

While "Unauthorized," like its title suggests, won't be a direct adaptation of that book, it will contain similar scenarios, collected through numerous new interviews conducted to write the screenplay. »

TV on Tap: Grumpy Cat Gets a Lifetime Christmas Movie, “Modern Family” Is the World’s Most-Watched Comedy

12 June 2014 4:39 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

Lifetime has ordered a Christmas movie, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (I figured a grumpy anything‘s worst Christmas would involve being in a Hallmark Channel movie.) The movie will involve a “perpetually overlooked” cat in a pet store and a 12-year-old girl who can communicate with the animal. Casting is underway for the voice of Grumpy Cat.

USA has ordered a second season of Emt comedy Sirens.

Netflix is reviving kids science cartoon The Magic School Bus. The new version will use CGI animation.

In response to the new Magic School Bus show as well as the Reading Rainbow revival, Vulture suggests eight more kids’ shows that deserve a comeback. Those original 3-2-1 Contact episodes are still pretty watchable.

Kelly Kapowski Just Made Chris Paul's Dreams Come True

4 June 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

NBA player Chris Paul recently celebrated his 29th birthday, and according to him, he received one of the best gifts he's ever gotten. The La Clippers point guard was the lucky recipient of a signed vintage head shot from none other than Tiffani Thiessen (aka Kelly Kapowski of Saved by the Bell) and was understandably bowled over upon getting such an adorable gift from Bayside High's resident hottie. Chris shared a photo of the autographed snap on his Facebook page Tuesday, writing, "This is easily one of the best Bday gifts I've ever received in my 29yrs on this Earth!!! #KellyKapowski #My1stLove #WeWereTogether #SheJustDidntKnowIt #CuzImSavedByTheBell." And because Kelly was everybody's go-to dream girl in the '90s, former tennis pro Andy Roddick couldn't help but reply to Chris via Twitter, saying, "I'm literally am having issues containing my jealousy..... Back off Cp!" Post by Chris Paul. »
