The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story Trailer Is Out – Watch It Now

Originally posted 08/08/2014 04:30PM

Hard-core Saved by the Bell fans have been waiting 20 years for this.

Lifetime has released the first glimpse from The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, but so far, there's nothing scandalous – the trailer depicts a normal group of teenagers dealing with hormones.

The clip shows the Elizabeth Berkley character (who played Jessie Spano) trying to de-escalate the competition between Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) for the attention of Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), while Dustin Diamond (Screech Powers) tries to keep up with the physical prowess of Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater). And all the while, the six teens ignore adult direction – pretty much your average high school dynamic.

Diamond's 2009 book, Behind the Bell told of less-PG activities, like drug use and sex, but Lifetime claims their story is unrelated to the tell-all, and is instead based on new interviews with those associated with the show.

Dustin Diamond: She's Not the Lark Voorhies I Knew

In 2003, Lark Voorhies and Dustin Diamond reunited after many years to record commentary for a Saved by the Bell box set. But it wasn't the Screech-and-Lisa reunion he expected.

"I was always used to playing off of her and looking into her eyes," Diamond says of his former costar. "When I saw her at the commentary, it wasn't the Lark I knew."

Voorhies stared into space, Diamond says, much like she did during a series of interviews with PEOPLE. Voorhies says she is spiritual, but her mother Tricia revealed her daughter was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

She wasn't always like this. Voorhies, who famously played the bubbly Lisa Turtle on the '90s Saturday morning sitcom, was just as engaging offscreen, recalls Mario Lopez.

The actor who played Screech is planning a racy tell-all about his years as the lovable nerd on Saved by the Bell.

Dustin Diamond, 31, who played Samuel "Screech" Powers on the popular sitcom and its spinoffs from 1989 to 2000, has landed a book deal. In Behind the Bell, Diamond will dish on what he and his costars – including Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley – did when cameras weren't rolling, according to New York magazine.

The book, which Diamond will pen with help from a ghost writer, will include "sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying," the magazine reports.
