Lifetime Books Saved by the Bell Movie; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 23, 2014)

The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Cast

Lifetime takes a nostalgic look back at the '90s sitcom that changed the landscape of Saturday mornings with America's favorite teens. The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story delves into the experiences of six unknown young actors placed into the Hollywood spotlight, exposing the challenges of growing up under public scrutiny while trying to maintain the squeaky clean image of their popular characters both on and off-screen. The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story is filming in Vancouver and the movie will premiere Labor Day, Monday September 1, at 9 pm PT/ET.

With casting by the original series' casting director, Robin Lippin (Lizzie McGuire), Dylan Everett (Degrassi: The Next Generation) is set to play Mark-Paul Gosselaar in the role of mischievous ringleader Zack Morris. Sam Kindseth (Shameless) is Dustin Diamond, everyone's favorite geek and loveable sidekick Screech. Julian Works (Paranormal Activity) fills the shoes of superstar Mario Lopez as the hunky jock A.C. Slater. Alyssa Lynch (The High Jumping Witch) plays the role of America's favorite sweetheart, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, who originated the part of Kelly Kapowski. Tiera Skovbye (Supernatural) takes on the role of talented beauty Elizabeth Berkley and her beloved character Jessie Sapano. Rounding out the cast is Taylor Russell McKenzie (Blink) who will portray Lark Voorhies and her on-screen persona, the privileged Lisa Turtle.
