Time out... they're making WHAT??? (via NBC)

Lifetime, television for people who loved Saved By The Bell, has a major announcement: they are making an unauthorized  television movie of NBC's cheesy, long-running, racist children's show Saved By The Bell.

Of course we all remember Dustin Diamond's tell-all book where he complains that everyone in the cast was getting laid but him, and everyone was doing drugs but him, so Lifetime took his lead and found out what really happened off-screen from everyone involved -- but him. 

It's gonna be so good!

The movie was cast by the original series' casting director,  Robin Lippin.  BuzzFeed got the exclusive on who's playing who.  

I can't wait for 20 years from now to see the making of "the making of" movie. (via BuzzFeed)

Dylan Everett, the Degrasi: The Next Generation star looks shockingly like Mark Paul Gosselaar with his hair bleached.
