"I know nothing about what they are planning," the Showgirls star, 41, admitted to Us Weekly. "I’m not really curious about it because we know the life we led, and I have no idea what their picture of it is. So who knows!"

The television movie is set to highlight the behind-the-scenes drama that went on during the sitcom's long run in the '80s and '90s. Part of the film's story will be based off Dustin Diamond's 2009 tell-all book Behind the Bell, which outlined the cast's drug use and sexual escapades.

The film's creators also conducted their own interviews to give an in-depth look into the hit sitcom's alleged true story. Supernatural's Tiera Skovbye will play Berkley, who brought book smart feminist Jessie Spano to life on the show.
