Jets RB Le’Veon Bell won’t play in the preseason

Jets RB Le’Veon Bell won’t play in the preseason Le’Veon Bell won’t make his Jets debut until the games actually count. Adam Gase confirmed Sunday night after the team’s Green & White practice at MetLife Stadium that they don’t plan on playing the Pro Bowl running back during the preseason. 

Pull up a chair, kids. Now turn that bad boy around and pop a squat at The Max diner, because NBCUniversal's upcoming streaming service Peacock is rebooting "Saved By the Bell" — and Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley will return as cast members.

Peacock's "Saved By the Bell" reboot hails from Universal Television, and will be written and executive produced by Tracey Wigfield. Peter Engel and Franco Bario will executive produce. Pretty good pedigree there, as Engel was an executive producer on "Saved By the Bell," as well as spinoffs "The College Years" and "The New Class." Bario produced on all three of those series.

Here is the new version's perfect logline:

When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.

Yeah, Zack's the friggin' governor.

A rep for Gosselaar and a spokeswoman for NBCUniversal did not respond to our question about his potential involvement.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar Says He ‘Was Never Approached’ for ‘Saved by the Bell’ Revival

Mark-Paul Gosselaar Says He ‘Was Never Approached’ for ‘Saved by the Bell’ Revival The Bayside gang is reuniting, but Zack Morris isn’t invited — for the time being, at least. Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played the good-looking yet incorrigible Zack in NBC’s beloved “Saved by the Bell” series, said he was never approached to take part in the show’s forthcoming TV sequel, which will reprise roles from Mario Lopez and and Elizabeth Berkley. “I read it in the trades just like everybody else this morning,” Gosselaar told Variety on the “Mixed-ish” premiere red carpet Monday night. “Honestly, I was never approached. I woke up to the news this morning with a kind of ‘huh’ response.

Lopez, who definitely will be back, played jock and army kid (we won't call him a "brat," he was nice), A.C. Slater. Berkley played overachiever and feminist Jessie Spano. The two characters dated throughout much of the original series, which followed a close-knit group of six friends trying to make it through their teens while attending Bayside High School in Palisades, Calif.

For now, Universal and Peacock are playing the rest of the details close to the vest. We're hopeless romantics though, and are hoping Slater and Jessie are married — or at least about to rekindle an old flame.

The NBCU SVOD service is also rebooting drama "Battlestar Galactica." That one comes courtesy of "Mr. Robot" creator Sam Esmail.

Peacock will be available in April 2020, when it will roll out with more than 15,000 hours of content. We do not yet have a price, but Peacock will be both ad and subscription-supported.
