Unauthorized Full House, the true story behind the TV show, Full House, is set to premiere tonight on the Lifetime Channel. Full House is an American sitcom that first aired in September 1987. The show, which was created by Jeff Franklin, ran from 1987 to 1995. Tonight’s Unauthorized Full House movie is directed by Brian K. Roberts and written by Ron McGee. It stars Garrett Brawith, Justin Mader, Justin Gaston, according to The Internet Movie Database (IMDB).
It focused on family head Danny Tanner, a man whose wife has recently died in a car accident after she was killed by a drunk driver. After losing the love of his life, he needed help raising his three daughters and sought the help of his brother-in-law Jesse, who became “Uncle Jesse,” and his friend Joey. U.S. audiences absolutely adored the Full House show in during the first years. Watching Full House meant that it was time to gather the family together and sit down in front of the TV to enjoy a wholesome family show. The enthusiasm about the show lasted for several seasons. Over the years, those times changed, and by 1995 executives and producers were not pulling in the ratings that they needed in order to keep full house on the air, leading to its cancellation in the mid-1990s. By that time, audiences had changed. Television was becoming more hip—more reality based. Executive producers were now catering to much younger audiences instead of trying to appeal to families.
It is rumored that there was also a lot of drama brewing between the actors. As some of the actors became more successful and demanded more money, jealousy set in. Many accused John Stamos of being arrogant and ‘full of himself’ while he was on the show. Some believed that Stamos wanted more of the show to revolve around him. Make no mistake, Full House was popular because of John Stamos. The Olsen Twins were also a cute addition to the show, a fact that seemed to annoy Stamos—-or at least, according to Lifetime’s version. In the end, John had become bored with the show and was no longer enjoying it as he had in previous years. He talks about this with the Los Angeles Times back in 1995.
“I went through phases with the show.() In the beginning, I loved it and I was fired up and I wanted to do good stories. Then I got bored and I wanted to leave. Then I realized how important the show was to families and children, and I didn’t want it to end.”
John Stamos recently visited the Full House home back in March of this year. He posted a picture of himself standing outside the famous home as several Full House fans passed by. The Full House fans seemed to be fascinated by the house but didn’t notice that the famous star was standing right in front of it. In January, The New York Daily News reported that the Full House cast members reunited to celebrate the birthday of the show’s creator, Jeff Franklin. Lori Loughlin, Jodie Sweetin, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Candace Cameron, and Andrea Barber were all in attendance. A video of the memorable bash was posted to Andrea Barber’s Instagram account.
The original Full House TV show cast members included John Stamos as Uncle Jesse, aka Jesse Katsoplis, Bob Saget as Danny Tanner, Dave Coulier as Joey Gladstone, Candace Cameron as DJ, Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie, Lori Loughlin as Rebecca Donaldson Katsopolis, Andrea Barber as Kimmy, and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen as Michele Tanner.
It’ll be most interesting to see how Lifetime Television pulls the entire story together. Most likely, it will include all of the juicy gossip from the 1990’s. Be sure not to miss it. #UnauthorizedFullHouse airs tonight at 8/7 central on Lifetime. The Inquisitr recently reported on two other Lifetime movies, Unauthorized Saved By The Bell and Perfect High.
