She’s gone from Glee to The Disney Channel and is now about to make a splash on one of the most anticipated reboots in recent memory. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that actress and trans activist Josie Totah is joining Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez on the reboot of Saturday morning favorite Saved By The Bell, poised to be airing on the Peacock Network when it launches this April. (All details about Peacock will be revealed January 16th during a presentation for NBC Universal investors). Totah will also be receiving a producer credit on the project.
Original Saved By The Bell ingenues Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley are both returning to their roles as A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano, respectively. California Governor Zak Morris (adding hope that Mark-Paul Gosselaar returns for at least a cameo) decides to close a significant number of low-income high schools, and his proposition for the students impacted will drive those students to he and his fellow former schoolmates alma mater-Bayside High.
The announcement reads “we’re excited to share the news that Josie Totah has been cast as Lexi, a series regular in Peacock’s upcoming Saved by the Bell series. Lexi is described as “a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High, both admired and feared by her fellow students.”
