‘Saved by the Bell Story:’ Do you believe the gossip?

Those of us who grew up in the 90’s most definitely remember watching Saved by the Bell. The series, which ran for much of that decade, was one of TV’s most popular shows at that time. And now Lifetime is in the process of filming an explosive new biopic – revealing to viewers that all of the jokes and happy faces may have been a front.

The Lifetime movie, entitled ‘The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story’ wants viewers to believe that behind the scenes, the cast was involved in scandals involving sex, drugs, and fighting! The trailer gives a good glimpse into what fans can expect.

The idea for the movie comes not long after Dustin Diamond, who played Screech on the show, wrote a tell-all book on what life was really life for him on the show. In the book, Diamond claims that the cast members were all involved with drugs and alcohol. Diamond has since backtracked on the accusations in his book, leaving the other cast members unimpressed with the whole thing.

What do you think of the movie trailer? Will you watch when it finally airs?
