Many young adults have happy memories of “Saved by the Bell.” But were things so happy behind-the-scenes of the popular ’90s teen show? According to a new Lifetime movie, “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story,” the answer is definitely no.
A clip from that movie, focusing on a near-disastrous photo-shoot, makes that clear.
Teenage hormones are raging in this video as photographers try desperately for smiles. That’s hurt somewhat by Lark Voorhies (Taylor Russell McKenzie) being jealous of Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Alyssa Lynch) because Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Dylan Everett) tickled her. Mario Lopez’s (Julian Works) push-ups then infuriate Dustin Diamond (Sam Kindseth). Not even Elizabeth Berkley (Tiera Skovbye) can keep the peace.
It’s soapy movie goodness at its finest.
“The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” will premiere Sept. 1 on Lifetime.
