After Lifetime hit a ratings high note with its Angela Bassett-directed biographical film that chronicled the tumultuous relationship of her superstar parents Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown (click here to read more about that), TV One is looking to follow suit by unveiling an in-depth look at the life of Bobbi Kristina.
Simply titled ‘Bobbi Kristina,’ the made-for-TV flick will reportedly lend an “intimate look at the highs and lows of parental, familial and romantic love complicated by fame through the eyes of a sensitive, vulnerable young woman.”
More details inside:
Starring singer/actress Demetria McKinney [‘Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,’ ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’] as Whitney Houston, ‘The Wire’s Hassan Jonson as Bobby Brown, ‘Stuck in the Middle’s Joy Rovaris as Bobbi Kristina, and ‘Grown Up’s Nadji Jeter as her her boyfriend Nick Gordon, the feature will also see Vivica A. Fox round out its cast as Whitney’s troublesome sister-in-law Pat Houston.
‘Bobbi Kristina’ is slated to premiere later this summer closer to the two year anniversary of her passing. She was 22.
