Zack, Slater, Screech, Kelly, Jessie and Lisa may have been best friends on Saved by the Bell, but apparently off camera, there was some serious drama going on and that’s exactly what The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story is going to explore.  Things looked pretty peachy in that first image of Lifetime’s versions of Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Dustin Diamond, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley and Lark Voorhies, but that’s definitely not the case in the first clip from the movie.

Hit the jump to catch the The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story clip and find out what happens when tempers flare during a photo shoot.  The TV movie is set to air on Monday, September 1st at 9pm and stars Dylan Everett, Sam Kindseth, Julian Works, Alyssa Lynch, Tiera Skovbye and Taylor Russell McKenzie.

If you watched the show all through the 90s, you’re bound to have some fun with this, but between those baby faces and the fact that everybody seems super short, it’s hard not to notice that these actors seem a little too young for this.  Plus, the tone feels more satirical than I anticipated.  Perhaps it’s just because we’re getting this clip completely out of context, but as presented here, it’s more like the actors are making fun of their 90s counterparts rather than playing them as real people.

Here’s the official synopsis of The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story:

Lifetime takes a nostalgic look back at the ‘90s TV show that changed the landscape of Saturday mornings with America’s favorite teens. “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” delves into the experiences of six unknown young actors placed into the Hollywood spotlight, exposing the challenges of growing up under public scrutiny while trying to maintain the squeaky clean image of their popular characters both on and off-screen. “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” is filming in Vancouver and the movie will premiere Labor Day, Monday September 1, at 9 pm PT/ET.
