Lifetime has released a new two minute clip of their unauthorized television movie about the behind the scenes drama in the making of the 1990′s television series Saved By the Bell. The new clip shows Dustin Diamond, played by Sam Kindseth, on his first day on the Disney Channel show Good Morning, Miss Bliss, the middle school television series which spawned Saved By The Bell. Watch the new clip alongside the other released previews, the first five minutes, and The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story movie trailer, all embedded after the jump.
Here is the new clip which features Sam Kindseth, as Dustin Diamond, on his first day on the Disney Channel show Good Morning, Miss Bliss:
Lifetime previously premiered the first five minutes of The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story movie on Youtube. The opening shows the Save By The Bell cast’s nervous limo ride to one of their first appearances. Watch it now below:
Days earlier, Lifetime premiered The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story movie trailer:
A couple weeks ago, Lifetime released a video clip showing the drama that supposedly went on during the taping of the classic television series’ opening title credits sequence. You can watch that clip here. Both the clip and the trailer look on par with what you might expect from a made for Lifetime television movie. As someone who grew up with Saved By The Bell, I’m still interested to check this out, despite these horrible clips.
The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story is inspired by, but not based on, Dustin Diamond’s book Behind the Bell. The 2009 tell-all claimed that when the cameras weren’t rolling, the stars of the wholesome Saved By The Bell television series were getting high and hopping in and out of bed with one another.
The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story stars Dylan Everett (Mark-Paul Gosselaar / Zack Morris), Alyssa Lynch (Tiffani Thiessen / Kelly Kapowski), Julian Works (Mario Lopez / A.C. Slater), Tiera Skovbye (Elizabeth Berkley / Jessie Spano), Sam Kindseth (Dustin Diamond / Screech Powers), and Taylor Russell McKenzie (Lark Voorhies / Lisa Turtle). Jason Pepeyre directed the made-for-television movie.
The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story will air on Lifetime September 1st 2014.
