The hit teen show "Saved By The Bell" aired from 1989 to 1993 and was a favorite of young adults across the country. On Thursday, the executive producer of the show Peter Engel joined WGN Morning News live in studio.

Engel, who recently wrote a book titled "I Was Saved by the Bell: Stories of Life, Love, and Dreams That Do Come True," shared stories about working with Screech, Zach, Kelly and Slater.

He talked about what it was like working with young actors and how there lots of off-screen romances between the cast.

"They got along great," he said. "As Tiffani Thiessen said a few years ago, 'everybody dated everybody.' One of the important things was no one ever dated while they dated in the show."

Engel also talked about what it took to work with six young actors and how he kept them focused.

"It was so much fun, I had to be the father not only to my own kids but to them," he said. "If it wasn't a family, it could have never worked with six teenagers."
