Lifetime releases first five minutes of 'The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story'

By Rachel Karach,

Lifetime television network has released yet another sneak peak of their controversial Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story.

The film reportedly chronicles sort of what it was like behind the scenes of the hit 1990s teen sitcom, Saved By The Bell. According to CNN the show celebrated its 25th anniversary on Aug. 20. The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story is based on Dustin Diamond’s (Screech) book about his time on the show, Behind the Bell.

Former co-star Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played the high school stud Zack Morris, isn’t on board with the new Lifetime project. In fact, he has recently called Diamond out for his negative take on working with his old cast mates.

“Everything that I've heard about his book is negative and I don't remember those things,” Gosselaar said. “I don't mind talking about it, I just don't really remember that time, and also everything I do remember was extremely positive.”

As the film is set to premiere on Sept. 1, Lifetime has released the first five minutes in an effort to create some buzz. The beginning of the movie features anxious cast members riding in a limo before arriving at a publicity event.
