Watch: Screech Punches Out Zack Morris In This NEW Trailer For ‘The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story’

I'm SO here for this!
"I am NOT Screech!"

Lifetime has released a second trailer for their upcoming biopic made-for-TV movie The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story, which is set to premiere on Labor Day, and as you can see above — it features a LOT of great new footage from the movie. Keep in mind, this TV movie is based on the book that was written by actor Dustin Diamond (Screech) so it will likely offered a view of events skewed in his favor … which is probably why there is a scene in the movie showing the actor playing Diamond punching the actor playing Mark-Paul Gosselaar (which you can see in the trailer above). Have a look and get ready, we are that much closer to the world premiere of The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story on Lifetime on September 1.

Um, Okay: ‘Lifetime’ Finds Their Missy Elliot And Timbaland For The ‘Aaliyah’ Movie

That Ish Cray Of-The-Day

Okay, I feel a little bad for all of the WTFs I’m about to throw out there because two young actors are somewhere, feeling really excited. They just got cast alongside Alexandra Shipp (who replaced Zendaya Coleman) in Lifetime‘s made-for-TV Aaliyah biopic and I know they feel great. I don’t want to rain on that parade and I am, actually, happy for those actors. I wish them the best in their careers, truly. Now. All that being said… it’s very strange to see that Chattrisse Dolabaille and Izaak Smith are going to be playing Missy Elliot and Timbaland, respectively. I sort of… cannot with this. And I need some help working through this. Click inside for more!

Basically, everyone hated everyone
So. Many. Bad. Wigs.

Today, courtesy of Buzzfeed, we get our first look at footage from The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story. As you can see in the clip above, the young actors were full of raging hormones on the set of SBTB which meant there was a lot of in-fighting, apparently.

"Let me just explain something..."

Yesterday we learned that actress Alexandra Shipp has been cast in the lead role of the planned Lifetime made-for-TV biopic film about Aaliyah and today we are hearing from the young actress who was originally cast in the role. It was announced last month that Zendaya would be playing Aaliyah in the biopic film but about a week later, she dropped out of the project. There have been many rumors about why she left the project, rumors that Zendaya puts to rest in a series of videos that she posted to Instagram last night. Zendaya says she did not drop out of the project due to the haters. She says she did so because the production value of the film, among other things, was why she decided to bow out.
