Michael Bivins, Ronnie Devoe, Bobby Brown, Ralpha Tresvant, Ricky Bell, and Johnny Gill – better known as New Edition – have individually and collectively been some of R&B’s most unsung heroes.  Come January 2017, that will change.

‘The New Edition Story,’ airing on BET on January 24, 25, and 26, will come as a six-hour/three night event set to give long-awaited insight into the story of one of the genre’s most electrifying groups.  Following their journey from the streets of Boston to the stages of Hollywood and beyond, the group – best known for its hits ‘Candy Girl,’ ‘If It Isn’t Love,’ ‘Cool It Now,’ and ‘Mr. Telephone Man,’ will see their tale brought to life via portrayals by ‘Empire’ star Bryshere Y. Gray (Bivins), singer Luke James (Gill), Elijah Kelly (Bell), and many more.

Keen to see more of what’s in store for January?  Tuck in below:

Directed by Chris Robinson, the film was produced by members of the group and their longtime manager Brook Payne.

    “Hold On” The En Vogue Story Tel me that would not be juicy, the fights, dawn cutting up , the flop albums, the fight over the NAME. Beef with luther, Cindy being taken car of by that football player, the shady music contracts, terry flop solo career,The egos, the SUCCESS. that would be GOOD. This looks amazing as well

    I hope the story is told in chronological order beginning with them as kids forming the original band that probably started off in talent shows. In other words I want to see the build up to the record deal and “Candy Girl” and the complete story leading up to the present. Hopefully no flashbacks or major skipping of time periods/fast forwards.
