BET has finally released the official trailer for the hugely-anticipated biopic project The BOBBY BROWN STORY!!!
The BOBBY BROWN STORY is the follow-up to the uber-successful BET three-part series, The NEW EDITION STORY.
SHADOW And ACT reports;
The upcoming two-part miniseries sees Woody McClain reprising his role as Bobby Brown. Joining him will be Rosewood and future Luke Cage star Gabrielle Dennis as Whitney Houston, as well as Mekhi Phifer, Lil Rel Howery, T.K. Carter, Laz Alonso, Lance Gross and Alyssa Goss. Sandi McCree and Tyler Marcel Williams will reprise their roles as Brown's mother and the younger version of Brown, and at least one New Edition member will appear with Algee Smith (who portrays Ralph Tresvant) confirmed to make an appearance.
The director is Spike Lee protege, New York University graduate Kiel Adrian Scott.
The Bobby Brown Story will pick up where the New Edition mini left off. It will chronicle the talented but troubled singer’s exit from the popular ’80s boy band through his solo success, his affair with Janet Jackson and tabloid-fodder marriage to pop icon Whitney Houston. Spanning 30 years of Brown’s life, the new project follows his story from the hard streets of Roxbury, where he turned to a life of drug dealing before being given the chance to prove himself as a solo artist.
