In 1988, Diamond began playing the role of Screech on the Disney Channel’s Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which starred Hayley Mills as a middle-school teacher. After the series was cancelled, a few of the characters, including Screech, were transplanted to high school in the sitcom Saved by the Bell, co-starring Elizabeth Berkley, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Lark Voorhies. Taking place at Bayside High, the series became a popular component of NBC’s Saturday morning kid’s lineup and sometimes highlighted serious fare with its frothy storylines. The perennially on-another-planet Screech was popular for his oddball, earnest antics.
Even after its cancellation, Bell developed a large fan following, going in syndication on TBS for many years. Diamond starred in various Bell TV movies and a primetime 1993 spinoff, Saved by the Bell: the College Years, which ran for only one season. Saved by the Bell was followed by a daytime spinoff as well, Saved by the Bell: The New Class, in which Diamond reappeared as Screech, now a college student working as part of the school’s administrative staff. The show ran for seven seasons.
Post-Bell, Diamond put out a 2001 instructional video, Dustin Diamond Teaches Chess, and flexed his musical muscles by playing bass with the alternative metal group Salty the Pocketknife, appearing on their 2003 self-titled debut. He also appeared on a number of TV shows like Celebrity Boxing, The Weakest Link and Hollywood Squares, and worked as a stand-up comedian.
In 2006, Diamond made news as portions of a sex video featuring the actor with two women were leaked onto the internet to much media attention. Initially publicly protesting the clip, he later signed a deal with its distributor to take a cut of the profits. The video was officially released with a rather alarming title. Later allegations surfaced from the broker of the deal that Diamond had intended for the clip to be released all along, and that he may have used a body double.
Then in 2007, Diamond gained more notoriety as a contestant on Celebrity Fit Club, a VH1 reality program where various media personalities vied to lose weight in a contest format.
In 2009, Diamond published a tell-all memoir called Behind the Bell by Transit Publishing, focusing on his experiences on the set of his childhood hit.
Dustin will be joined by the cast of BAYSIDE THE MUSICAL, who will perform a song from the show!
But my Professional Bridesmaid training started a few years earlier, back in 2010, when I started traveling the country as a consultant for a national sorority. Every week I found myself hoping off a plane in a new city and working with a group of women I had never met before. I would help them organize and delegate their to-do lists, problem solve overwhelming situations, and cleanse their lives of any chaos or drama that was swimming circles around them. I learned how to make strangers into friends and turn difficult challenges into stress-free adventures.
I’m the heart behind The Things I Learned From + the main character of All My Friends are Engaged + a recurring motivational speaker + in a serious relationship with NYC pizza + the lead guitarist of a “hit” cover band with my dad + and I’ve been spotted around town wearing old bridesmaid dresses to the library, grocery store, and (once) on a first date.
