Lifetime's 'Olsen Twins' Mean Business, Ask for Double the Pay in New Unauthorized Full House Story Clip
The tell-all TV movie that goes behind the scenes of Full House will premiere on Lifetime on Aug. 22
Do the Olsen twins means business? You got it, dude.
At least, that’s the case in a new clip from Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Full House Story, a tell-all TV movie that delves into the alleged behind-the-scenes drama of the wildly popular ’90s show Full House and its cast.
In the exclusive clip, some serious negotiations go down between Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen‘s representatives and the show’s executives regarding how much the twins – who shared the role of Michelle Tanner, youngest daughter in the show’s San Francisco family – will get paid.
“What kind of renegotiations for the twins?” asks a weary executive.
“Double. Each,” is the ominous response.
Blaise and Kinslea Todd play the toddler versions of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in the Lifetime movie, and they certainly look the part, sporting sneaky smiles, pigtails and cute cardigans.
The clip also pokes fun at John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse on the beloved family sitcom.
In one scene, Stamos (played by Days of Our Lives‘ Justin Gaston) arrives at a red carpet event.
“John, what’s it like to be dating Paula Abdul?” asks a reporter over the din of screaming fans. “You’re still on that kids’ show, right?”
The TV movie is the newest installment in Lifetime’s "Unauthorized" film franchise, which released The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story last year.
As for Full House fans, they can get their fix of America’s favorite ’90s family on Aug. 22, when The Unauthorized Full House Story premieres on Lifetime at 8 p.m. ET.
