Like "Saved By the Bell" before it, Lifetime is targeting another beloved sitcom for a behind-the-scenes movie: "Full House."

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the network is currently working on "The Unauthorized Full House Story," which will focus on the men, women, and children who made up the cast of the wildly popular TGIF staple. Per THR:

In the same vein that its Saved By the Bell pic did, Lifetime's Full House Story will look at the rise of the cast - including John Stamos, Bob Saget and the Olsen twins - and explore the pressure on them to balance idyllic family life on the show with the more complicated reality of their own lives outside the series. Additionally, it will look at the warm bond that grew between the cast as the show became one of America's most beloved family sitcoms.


The same team behind "The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story" is penning the "Full House Story" script, and Lifetime is currently casting the flick. No premiere date has been announced yet.

"Full House" is undergoing a renaissance as of late, as it's also slated for a revival on Netflix. "Fuller House" will follow grown-up D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Kimmy (Andrea Barber) as they raise their own children; Stamos is also set to appear, while the rest of the cast is in negotiations.
