Lifetime’s ‘Full House’ Movie Cast Announced

Let Netflix fixate on the reboot. Lifetime still thinks there’s plenty to tell about the original “Full House,” announcing Thursday its cast for “The Unauthorized Full House Story.”

Like last year’s “Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” project, this production plans to portray the “real story” behind the scenes of the classic ABC sitcom. It will explore the rise to fame of cast members like Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, John Stamos and Bob Saget and also how they grappled with portraying the picture-perfect world of the show while their own lives weren’t always so rosy. (Stamos is a producer of Netflix’s “Full House” sequel, which concentrates on Cameron Bure’s character D.J. Tanner and also stars Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier and Saget).

Ron McGee of “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” will pen this movie, which hails from Front Street Pictures and Ringaling Productions Ltd. Harvey Kahn and Stephen Bulka, also of Lifetime’s “Saved by the Bell,” will exec produce.

“The Unauthorized Full House Story” will air at 8 p.m. August 22 on Lifetime.
