Here’s the first five minutes from the tale of six kids who struck sitcom gold a quarter-century ago. Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Story Of Saved By The Bell dives into the behind-the-scenes drama as the cast struggles to maintain their squeaky-clean image amid growing stardom. Dylan Everett stars as Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Sam Kindseth as Dustin Diamond, Julian Works as Mario Lopez, Alyssa Lynch as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Tiera Skovbye as Elizabeth Berkley and Taylor Russell McKenzie as Lark Voorhies. (Casting by original Saved By The Bell casting director Robin Lippin, by the way.) The pic premieres September 1. As Rod Serling said in that great “wish him to the cornfield” episode of The Twilight Zone: No comment here, no comment at all.
