After creating buzz with its campy "Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story" last year, Lifetime has continued to tap hit '90s shows for their behind-the-scenes drama.
The network announced Wednesday that "Melrose Place" is the latest TV tell-all in the works.
"Drawing from true stories and anecdotes from interviews with the original cast and crew, 'The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story' will highlight the remarkable behind-the-scenes moments that shaped the series — from early casting drama and Heather Locklear arriving to 'save' 'Melrose Place' to the actors begging its writers for even wilder storylines to make them fan favorites," a representative for Lifetime told TODAY.com.
No word on who will play Locklear, who famously remained credited as a "Special Guest Star" long after her character Amanda Woodward became a series regular.
Executive producers Michael Larkin ("Secrets in the Walls") and Howard Braunstein ("The Informant!"), producer Christian Bruyere ("A Girl’s Best Friend"), writer Dana Schmalenberg ("Single Ladies") and director Mark Griffiths ("A Novel Romance") have signed on for the project.
"Melrose Place," which ran from 1992 to 1999 and focused on a group of 20-somethings living in a trendy West Hollywood apartment complex, began as a spinoff of "Beverly Hills, 90210" — which coincidentally, is also the subject of an upcoming "unauthorized" Lifetime movie.
Lifetime has yet to announce release dates for the "Melrose Place" and "90210" movies, but fortunately we have "The Unauthorized Full House Story" to look forward to on August 22.
