Lifetime is making a name for itself with unauthorized behind-the-scenes accounts of old 90s television shows.
The network started with The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story and has plans in place to make one about the making of Full House as well.
Now Lifetime will also make one about Beverly Hills, 90210.
The current title of the project is The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the account "will show the roller coaster ride of the program's first four seasons, highlighting the drama between cast members and producers both on and off set."
According to the creators of the film, the Lifetime movie will include "the series' journey from several near-cancellations to its massive success and imprint in the cultural zeitgeist and lasting impression it has made on millions of people to this day."
However, Beverly Hills, 90210 was on the air for 10 years, and the movie is only going to focus on the first four seasons when the show was in its heyday. Vanessa Parise will direct, and it will be scripted by Jeff Roda. No cast has been decided on yet (although some entertainment sites have already begun creating their "dream casts" for the project).
There is also no airdate yet for the Beverly Hills 90210 film. The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell story wasn't necessarily a huge hit, but Lifetime seems committed to these behind-the-scenes accounts. The Full House story makes sense because of the Netflix reboot of the series, but this account of the Beverly Hills 90210 series seems to have come a little out of nowhere. However, the CW did do a reboot of the series in 2008.
