Pull out your calendars and write “Faux Tanner Family Fun Night” on Saturday, August 22.
That’s when Lifetime will debut its The Unauthorized Full House Story, the network announced Thursday.
Capitalizing on the buzz about Netflix’s forthcoming Fuller House, which is a spinoff of the beloved ABC sitcom, The Unauthorized Full House Story will be a behind-the-scenes tell-all in the vein of the cabler’s The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.
The cast includes Garrett Brawith (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Bob Saget, Justin Mader (Rookie Blue) as Dave Coulier, Justin Gaston (Days of Our Lives) as John Stamos and Stephanie Bennett (UnREAL) as Lori Loughlin.
Stay with me here: The actresses playing the actresses playing the Tanner girls — who will be shown at multiple points in their growing-up — are: Shelby Armstrong and Brittney Wilson (Rogue) as Candace Cameron; Dakota Guppy (The Returned) and Jordyn Olson (The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story) as Jodie Sweetin; Blaise and Kinslea Todd, Calla and Tyla Jones and Kylie and Jordan Armstrong as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in toddlerhood, at age 6 and at age 9, respectively.
Aislyn Watson (Motive) and Jaime Schneider (The Killing) will round out the cast as the younger and older versions of Andrea Barber.
