Following the immensely successful The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story that premiered last fall, Lifetime will now go behind-the-scenes of another popular sitcom with The Unauthorized Full House Story. The TV movie will take a deep look at ABC's Full House sitcom, which turned John Stamos, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen into household names. At this time, no premiere date has been announced.
The Unauthorized Full House Story will focus on the rise of the cast and the pressure to make a sugary family show while balancing the realities of their own lives outside of the studio. It will also look at the bond that was formed amongst its stars, which helped the show become one of the most popular series of the 90s. This comes just a week after Netflix confirmed that the reunion series Fuller House will debut next year.
Ron McGee, who penned The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story , will write the script, which tracks the sitcom's 1987 debut through its wildly successful 192 episode run, which ended in 1995. Front Street Pictures and Ringaling Productions Ltd. will produce, with Harvey Kahn (Flowers In The Attic, Unauthorized Saved By The Bell) and Stephen Bulka (The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, Dear Mom, Love Cher) serving as executive producers. No cast members have been announced at this time.
