Hot off the news a Full House reboot is headed to Netflix, Lifetime has an unexpected announcement of its own: get ready for a Full House tell-all TV movie!
The Hollywood Reporter confirms the network has give the go-ahead for The Unauthorized Full House Story (working title). The MOW will chronicle the making of the hit ABC comedy, and explore the real-life pressures and frustrations that were often at odds with the idyllic Tanner family.
The announcement comes less than a year after Lifetime produced its unauthorized Saved By The Bell movie, which painted a not-so-blissful behind-the-scenes picture of the teen-friendly Saturday morning sitcom. And yes, the same writer is on board for the Full House follow-up.
Casting will begin right away, with no release date set as of now.
