‘Saved by the Bell’ reboot to debut on NBCU streaming service Peacock

Pull up a chair, kids. Now turn that bad boy around and pop a squat at The Max diner, because NBCUniversal’s upcoming streaming service Peacock is rebooting “Saved By the Bell” — and Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley will return as cast members.

Peacock’s “Saved By the Bell” reboot hails from Universal Television, and will be written and executive produced by Tracey Wigfield. Peter Engel and Franco Bario will executive produce. Pretty good pedigree there, as Engel was an executive producer on “Saved By the Bell,” as well as spinoffs “The College Years” and “The New Class.” Bario produced on all three of those series.

Here is the new version’s perfect logline:

When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.

Yeah, Zack’s the friggin’ governor.
