Lifetime Now Making ‘Unauthorized Melrose Place Story’

Break out the chokers and miniskirts! Lifetime has now greenlit “Unauthorized Melrose Place Story.”

The TV movie plans to be a tell-all of the Darren Star-created Fox sudser (not to be confused with the short-lived revamp that aired for a season on CW). It will cover early casting dramas and the famous arrival of Heather Locklear, who came on board to “save” the series, as well as the actors begging the “Melrose” writers for even wilder storylines to make them fan favorites.

The project is executive produced by Michael Larkin (“Secrets in the Walls”) and Howard Braunstein (“The Informant!”), produced by Christian Bruyere (“A Girl’s Best Friend”) and written by Dana Schmalenberg (“Single Ladies”). Mark Griffiths (“A Novel Romance”) will direct.

The “Melrose Place” story continues Lifetime’s trend of developing gossipy depictions of what went down on and off screen in 1980s and 1990s programming. Tell-alls of “Beverly Hills 90210” (which is also produced by Braunstein and Bruyere) and “Full House” are in the works. Last year, Lifetime aired “Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.”
