Video: Everyone’s bickering in ‘Saved By the Bell’ movie clip

Earlier this summer, Lifetime announced that it was developing a movie about Saved By the Bell, based on Dustin Diamond’s 2012 memoir. The network released an accompanying photo of the cast dressed up as their characters.

Further evidence that this TV movie is really happening came out this week, as Lifetime gave BuzzFeed (which is apparently the exclusive site for all Saved By the Bell movie news) a clip from the production. That video, featuring the cast members bickering with each other during a photo shoot, is now also available on YouTube.

Oooh, those kids just plain don’t like each other. Do any of these actors look like the original cast? For one thing, they all seem too young. And maybe too short? (Did that come off as heightist? If so, I apologize to anyone that may have been offended.) But the dude playing Slater has great form on his push-ups.

If you want more — and who wouldn’t after watching that sneak peek — The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story premieres Sept. 1 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
