MeTV Remembers Dustin Diamond
As a generation mourns the loss of actor Dustin Diamond, MeTV will present select episodes of Saved By The Bell showcasing his character Screech, the beloved, geeky classmate that made Diamond a fan favorite. The tribute will air Sunday, February 7th from 7am-10am ET/PT.
Updated from the earlier TV series Good Morning, Miss Bliss, Saved by the Bell originally aired from 1989 to 1993. Its success spawned several series offshoots including Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class, which Diamond also starred in, as well as two made-for-TV movies.
More recently, Diamond appeared in several reality television series including the fifth season of Celebrity Fit Club, The Weakest Link and Celebrity Boxing 2. In December 2013, Diamond was featured on an episode of OWN’s Where Are They Now? and was cast on the 12th season of Celebrity Big Brother.
Diamond died from lung cancer on Monday at the age of 44.
