The Bobby Brown Story blazed its way to ratings glory last week, amassing a whopping viewership of over 6 million across its two-night broadcast on BET.
And it’s understandable why.
Carrying the baton of authenticity established by last year’s ‘New Edition Story,’ the biopic did a stellar job of humanizing R&B’s original bad boy by pulling the curtain back on a narrative of superstardom, pain, addiction, and redemption.
Now, it’s the turn of international audiences to see Bobby like they’ve never seen him before.
With the movie set to premiere on BET UK on September 14th, That Grape Juice caught up with its central stars – Woody McClain and Gabrielle Dennis.
During their candid chat with TGJ’s Hemah K, the pair opened up on what it was like to play Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston respectively, as well as their process of recreating their unique (and oft controversial) dynamic.
Woody also explained his recent revelation about the project being his “last” in front of the camera.
