‘Saved By the Bell’ Story To Air on Lifetime, September 1st
What you may have thought was one of the most rounded cast on a television series may not be the case.
Inspired by Dustin Diamond’s (Samuel Powers; Screech) 2009 tell-all, the movie portrays a behind the scenes documentary of the cast. In 2009, Dustin Diamond (who portrayed Screech) wrote an indecent book called Behind the Bell, describing the “not so wholesome” incidents that occurred between the cast members. According to Diamond, all five thespians except for him engaged in drugs, sexual activity, and were even involved in threesomes. Interestingly enough, none of Diamond’s atrocious claims have been verified. TIME magazine reported that the TV movie will coincide with Diamond’s alleged witnessing of these events.
Check out a sneak peek featuring the cast as they argue during a photo shoot:
The cast are played by Dylan Everett (Degrassi: The Next Generation) as Mark-Paul Gosselaar/”Zack,” Julian Works (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) as Mario Lopez/”Slater,” and Tiera Skovbye (Supernatural) as Elizabeth Berkley/”Jessie.”
