Beverly Hills, 90210 Getting Lifetime 'Unauthorized' Movie Treatment

Break out the scrunchies and the quilted vests — Lifetime has chosen Beverly Hills, 90210 as the latest classic TV show to spawn a behind-the-scenes, tell-all movie, TVLine has confirmed.

The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story 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 network — and will chart its several near-cancellations and eventual “massive success and imprint in the cultural zeitgeist.”

Beverly Hills, 90210 premiered on Fox in 1990, and launched cast members Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Luke Perry and Tori Spelling to instant stardom.

Lifetime previously aired The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story in 2014, and will premiere The Unauthorized Full House Story on Saturday, August 22.

The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story is executive produced by Peter M. Green (Mean Girls 2) and Howard Braunstein (Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B), written by Jeff Roda (Love Liza) and directed by Vanessa Parise (PopFan).

    I cant wait to see how Shannen is portrayed! The next one needs to be an unauthorized Charmed movie as a sequel following Shannen’s “character”.

    If the Saved by the Bell version is any indication, this is going to be awful. And I plan to watch the heck out of it!

  7. steven says:

    Now I know why this is unauthorized, cause NOBODY asked for it.

  8. GraceM says:

    I’ll check it out. B.H. was on when I was a teen.

  9. Fernanda says:

    there was an unauthorized 90210 parody, “Grosse Pointe”

    • James says:

      Actually, that one is “authorized”. The show’s creator who also created 9-Oh intended it to be a parody of the show, if not the whole genre itself.

  10. Et al says:

    Tori Spelling is on the phone with her agent as we speak seeing if they will cast her as herself.

  11. Gee, lemme guess, everyone was on drugs and everyone was having sex with everyone else.

  12. matty says:

    I am so sold on this one! I’ll watch it repeatedly.
