NEW YORK (AP) — Lifetime says it’s joining in the ‘Full House’ revival with a behind-the-scenes movie of the long-running family sitcom.

With the working title, “The Unauthorized Full House Story,” the film promises to unveil the pressures on cast members to balance the idyllic family life depicted on the show with the more complicated reality of their own real lives.

The creative team behind the project also produced Lifetime’s “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.” No cast or air date was announced for the film, which is in development.

The news comes on the heels of Netflix’s announced plans for 13 episodes of “Fuller House,” a current-day reboot of the sitcom.

The original “Full House” aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995, with stars including John Stamos and Bob Saget.
