Luke Perry doesn’t think very much of Lifetime’s Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 project. Or, to be more exact, “I don’t think about it” at all, the actor told a gaggle of reporters at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour while promoting his Up Entertainment movie Welcome Home.

According to Lifetime, The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story will show the roller coaster ride of the program’s first four seasons, highlighting the drama between cast members and producers both on and off set, including the series’ journey from several near-cancellations to its massive success and imprint in the cultural zeitgeist and lasting impression it has made on millions of people to this day.

Pretty much staying mum on the project, Perry said the project isn’t “relevant to anything that I’m doing now.” Therefore, the actor isn’t even the least bit curious to watch the project — which features relative unknown Jesy McKinney (Chapter III: Nightmare) as Perry — to see how factual it turns out. “I don’t even watch my own actual self on TV, why would I watch [this]? I don’t see it happening.”

Lifetime has a slew of these unauthorized projects, including ones on fellow ’90s favorites Saved By The Bell, Full House and Melrose Place.

The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story premieres Saturday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
