Saved by the Bell
Focusing on the life and trials of an idealistic and recently widowed high school teacher, Ms. Carrie Bliss. As she struggles to maintain discipline in the classroom and instruct her rambunctious students, she continually finds herself becoming involved in all of their teenage drama, angst, and laughs.
Good Morning, Miss Bliss was a short-lived American family-drama TV series that was intended as a vehicle for it's principal star, Hayley Mills. It was ultimately cancelled, the lively personalities of Ms. Bliss' young students garnered enough interest from the networks that it was reworked into a spin-off series called Saved by the Bell, with a number of the cast members moving on to star in the much more popular TV series. This later series focused on the daily lives of the students rather than the teachers.
Saved by the Bell proved so popular that this 'prequel series' was subsequently retitled and rebroadcast as "Saved by the Bell: The Junior High Years" with minor changes.
