For all the “Saved by the Bell” fans who been chomping at the bit to see Lifetime’s highly anticipated “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story,” it’s your lucky day: The network has released the first five minutes.
The teaser clip begins with cast members discussing their collective angst about the show’s future in the back of a limo in Cincinnati circa 1990.
Worried that the show’s going to be canceled, the six dopplegangers for the real Lisa Turtle, Kelly Kapowski, Jessie Spano, Screech, A.C. Slater and Zach Morris, are relieved when they pull up on a mob of shrieking teenagers holding placards with their names on them.
Right away, though, it’s apparent that this isn’t your normal behind-the-scenes at Bayside High movie after Screech interrupts Zach’s fourth-wall montage to give his own first hand account.
“This time, it’s not about you,” he tells Zach. “This is my story…what really happened behind the scenes of America’s favorite Saturday morning show.”
