Lifetime to Air 'Saved by the Bell' Tell-All

According to BuzzFeed, Lifetime is producing The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, a TV movie scheduled to air on Sept. 1. The flick will tell the story of what really happened behind the scenes of the hit early-’90s sitcom. And if it’s anything like what Dustin Diamond — that would be Screech — wrote about in his 2009 tell-all, Behind the Bell, it should be plenty juicy with lots of sex and drugs among the cast.  Diamond wrote that everyone in the cast, except him, was sleeping together (including threesomes!), and many were dabbling in drugs. Diamond’s memoir tipped off Hollywood to the fact there was a lot more going on behind the scenes. Now, thanks to hours of brand-new interviews conducted for this film (obtained independently of Diamond and his book), the real story will be brought to life in The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, a new Lifetime television movie that promises to change the way that fans look at the classic kids’ comedy.  Cast by the original Saved by the Bell casting director, Robin Lippin, the six actors who will play the sextet that made Bayside High such a popular Saturday morning destination — which BuzzFeed can now exclusively reveal — are as follows:
