Los Angeles, CA (June 19, 2014) - Lifetime takes a nostalgic look back at the '90s TV show that changed the landscape of Saturday mornings with America's favorite teens.

Tiera Skovbye (Supernatural, Girl in Progress) takes on the role of talented beauty Elizabeth Berkley and her beloved character "Jessie Sapano." Rounding out the cast is Taylor Russell McKenzie (Blink) who will portray Lark Voorhies and her on-screen persona, the privileged "Lisa Turtle."
