A "Saved By The Bell Musical" Is In The Works And They Want The "Next Bieber" To Star

The original producer of everyone's favorite 90s teen show Saved By The Bell is back with some news about something that is pretty amazing: A Saved By The Bell Musical.

That's right, now you will get to watch Zack Morris, Kelly Kapowski, A.C. Slater and Lisa Turtle sing and dance their teen dramas away. Hopefully Zack still gets to break the forth wall because that would make for some very amazing musical numbers.

The original cast is obviously too old to play high school kids anymore, so we would have to deal with the fact that there are new people playing our favorite characters, but maybe it'll be great. Engel told TMZ that he has been working on it for a while, and even asked the one and only Lin-Manuel Miranda, aka the creator of Hamilton and new voice of Gizmoduck, for advice.

He gave a little insight into the project, saying that if they were making this five years ago they would have wanted Justin Bieber to play Zack. He even says he offered it to him years ago when they originally thought of the idea! He says that he is too old now, but they would still like a "Justin-Bieber-type" (what ever that means) to play Zack.

He does hope that the original cast will come to the show when it opens, but for now they still need to build that cast. They want them to be between 18-22 so it's believable that they are in high school, so if you want to be in Saved By The Bell: The Musical maybe you still have a chance?

I wonder if it would be an original story line or if they would revisit one of the classics? Maybe go back and redo the one where Jesse was addicted to caffeine pills, that one was a classic. I wonder if because it was on stage they could do what they originally intended.

Does this sound like something you want to watch or do you think you'd rather stick with the good ol' cast of goofballs we all know and love? Vote here!

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


'Clarissa Explains It All' Reboot Is Apparently In The Works, And Melissa Joan Hart Is Involved

We first met Melissa Joan Hart in 1991 when she stepped onto the scene as Clarissa Darling. She was cool, unique, and iconic in her time. She's credited as the first female lead of a Nickelodeon show, and because of her they were able to make many other hit series like The Secret World of Alex Mack and The Amanda Show. But Clarissa was truly one-of-a-kind.  I mean, how many people do you know who owned a baby alligator named Elvis? Her show was different then a lot of others, because she would directly address the audience. She dealt


'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time. First of all, the lead character was a woman. Second of all, she was a woman with a controversial history. The recovering alcoholic was a career-focused woman, but she also made huge breakthroughs for women on television. She was a single mother, one who


'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us
