‘Full House’ TV Movie Coming to Lifetime

Netflix isn’t the only one getting into the “Full House” craze.

Lifetime is making a tell-all TV movie, “The Unauthorized Full House Story,” following last year’s “Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” telepic, Variety has confirmed.

Lifetime’s take on “Full House,” like the “Saved by the Bell” project, won’t include the original cast members, and will rather portray the “real story” with actors who are yet to be cast.

“Unauthorized Full House” will explore the cast’s rise to fame, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Bob Saget, plus the bond that grew among the cast, as the series became one of the most popular sitcoms of all time during its 192-episode run from 1987 to 1995. The movie — which does not yet have a premiere date — will also unveil the pressure felt by the stars to balance the idyllic family life on the show with the more complicated reality of their own lives off camera.

Ron McGee of “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” will pen the “Full House” 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 Saved by the Bell Story” only drew in 1.2 million viewers, but garnered considerable buzz, which is sure to be the case with the cabler’s “Full House” follow-up.

A “Full House” sequel series is coming to Netflix with 13 new episodes. Focusing on Candace Cameron Bure’s character D.J. Tanner, all grown up, original cast members Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Stamos, Coulier and Saget are also confirmed to appear.

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news.
