Lifetime's still giving the audience biopic news and this one's all about the unauthorized stories of Saved By The Bell.

Earlier this week, Buzzfeed broke news of the Lifetime movie about what really happened on the set of NBC's mega teen hit "Saved By The Bell." Unauthorized, of course, and Jarrett Wieselman’s “Lifetime To Air 'The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story'" states it’s not based on Dustin Diamond's 2009 scandalous memoir, Behind the Bell.

Who knew behind-the-scenes could involve threesomes?

But let’s start at where the show begins before learning who’s playing who.

Before "Saved By The Bell", scheming Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), nerdy Samuel "Screech" Powers (Dustin Diamond), and shopaholic Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies) appeared on Disney Channel's "Good Morning, Miss Bliss". 

In the teen sitcom that ran from 1988-1989, Hayley Mills played teacher Miss Bliss while Dennis Haskins started his run as Mr. Belding. Set in Indianapolis, Indiana, the show only lasted 13 episodes, but NBC reworked the idea and kept some of the same cast. 

Moving the show from the Midwest to California, “Saved By The Bell” took a much more slapstick approach and aged the students up from 8th graders to high schoolers.

Adding in Zack's teenage sweetheart Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen), feminist crusader Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), and jock A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), the new cast and plans were rounded out. 

“SBTB” ran from 1989-1993, followed by "Saved By The Bell: The College Years" (1993-1994), and later "Saved By The Bell: The New Class" (1993-2000) starring Haskins and Diamond. Two television movies featured the original cast in Saved By The Bell: Hawaiian Style and Saved By The Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas.

ABC reports Saved By The Bell's original casting director, Robin Lippin, chose people based on similar looks and talent in “Meet the Cast of the Lifetime  ‘Saved By The Bell’ Movie."

Michael Rothman and Lesley Messer say Toronto actor Dylan Everett will be portraying Gosselaar. Previously he worked as Campbell Saunders in "Degrassi: The Next Generation." You’ll probably see him the most. Alyssa Lynch doesn't have an IMDB page, so the actress's Thiessen better rock. 

Julian Works gets to play Lopez and the young actor has a few one-episode television credits and movies to his name. Plus, supports the LA Kings, who won the Stanley Cup earlier this month. Tiera Skovbye has a pretty good resume with work in several Hallmark movies and numerous television shows like “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour” and “Supernatural.” Hopefully Berkley’s in good hands.

 

Sam Kindseth landed the role of Dustin Diamond and recently appeared as Flore on Showtime’s “Shameless.” Taylor Russell’s only been in business since 2012, but played Jessica in Blink and is currently filming Suspension.

Not a lot of known names, so who is this cast?  And can they fill the shoes of a pretty mysterious movie? 

We’ll see. 

Let’s face it. The millennial generation will definitely be tuning in out of curiosity.
