Actors Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Marion Lopez are set to have their lives played out on the small screen in a new made-for-TV movie about their popular teen sitcom “Saved By The Bell”.

A film titled “The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story” is set to premiere on Lifetime network on Sept. 1, chronicling the behind-the-scenes drama at the program, which ended its four-season run in 1993.

According to Variety.com, the film is based on interviews with the cast and crew members, and will also include events depicted in actor Dustin Diamond’s 2009 memoir, “Behind the Bell,” which details offscreen relationships and cast members’ personal problems.

The original casting director for “Saved by the Bell,” Robin Lippin, was tapped to find modern-day equivalents for the main group of actors. The film’s cast includes” Degrassi: The Next Generation’s” Dylan Everett as Gosselaar, “Shameless” actor Sam Kindseth as Diamond, and “Supernatural” star Tiera Skovbye as Elizabeth Berkley.
