This will either be great — or a complete train wreck.
Lifetime, which has single-handedly cornered the market for unauthorized biopics, today released the names and first photographs of the cast of THE UNAUTHORIZED FULL HOUSE STORY.
The iconic roles include:
DANNY TANNER: Garrett Brawith (ROLLING) as Bob Saget.
JOEY GLADSTONE: Justin Mader (DEATH RACE) as Dave Coulier
JESSE KATSOPOLIS: Justin Gaston (DAYS OF OUR LIVES) as John Stamos.

STEPHANIE TANNER: Dakota Guppy (THE RETURNED) and Jordyn Olson (THE UNAUTHORIZED SAVED BY THE BELL STORY) as the younger and older versions of Jodie Sweetin.
MICHELLE TANNER: Blaise and Kinslea Todd as the toddler versions of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen; Calla and Tyla Jones playing them at age six and Kylie and Jordan Armstrong as the twins at nine years of age.
KIMMY GIBBLER: Aislyn Watson (FINDING MRS. CLAUS) and Jaime Schneider (TWISTED TALES OF MY 9 TO 5) as the younger and older versions of Andrea Barber.
From its start as an unassuming family comedy in 1987 to its eventual wildly popular 192-episode run, the film centers on the rise of the cast of one of America’s most beloved family sitcoms and the pressures they faced in balancing their television personas with their real lives.
In April, Netflix announced plans for a FULL HOUSE spinoff called FULLER HOUSE, which will feature many of the shows original stars and is slated to premiere in 2016.
THE UNAUTHORIZED FULL HOUSE STORY premiers August 22 at 8:00 PM on Lifetime.
