Hustler Announces 'Saved by the Bell' Parody
Hustler Video is moving the current wave of parody videos into the 1980s with the announcement of the upcoming "This Ain’t Saved by the Bell XXX."
“We were sure that some teen drama or comedy would come down the chute eventually. We couldn’t wait to get our hands on this one,” said Jeff Thill, Hustler Video Group director of operations. “It’s amazing, for such a silly show, how many fans it has.”
The mainstream sitcom, which ran from 1989-1992, focused on a small group of teens at Bayside High School. The show has some adult connections: actress Elizabeth Berkeley played Jessie and starred in director Paul Verhoeven's notorious NC-17-rated mainstream film "Showgirls" in 1995, and actor Dustin Diamond played Screech and had a sex tape released by Red Light District in 2006.
The video is in preproduction now.
“Fans will get this,” Thill said. "We have great resources on our staff to ensure that we capture the true essence of the show, like, for sure.”
"This Ain’t Saved by the Bell XXX" is set for fall release.
