Want to know when Lifetime is airing its unauthorized, behind-the scenes movies about Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place? Would you also like to see how the casting turned out? 

Let’s double your pleasure right now.

On Wednesday, Lifetime announced that The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story will air on Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. The film will revisit the highs, lows, and drama surrounding the first four seasons of the zeitgeist-dominating, Aaron Spelling-produced high school drama.

One week later, on Oct. 10, at 8 p.m., the network will shine a spotlight on another popular ’90s Spelling drama with The Unauthorized Melrose Place Storywhich examines the rise of the 20-something serial that took off to greater heights with the addition of Heather Locklear.

You can get your first look at the casts in the photos above and below, but let us note that Dan Castellaneta, a.k.a. the voice of Homer, is playing the mega-titan of TV, Aaron Spelling, in both movies. (And yet they didn’t rename the first one 9021-D’Oh!)
