BET continue to break new ground with original programming.

Their latest offering is a biopic on trail-blazing R&B pioneers New Edition.

Set to air in 2017, the three-part series chronicles the rise and career explosion of the ‘Candy Girl’ crooners. It’ll also touch of the dramas – some known, some not – which occurred behind the scenes.

‘Empire’ star Bryshere Y. Gray has been cast as Michael Bivins; Elijah Kelley takes on the role of Ricky Bell; Grammy nominee Luke James will play Johnny Gill; Algee Smith is Ralph Tresvant; Keith Powers is Ronnie Devoe, and Woody McClain plays Bobby Brown.

Watch the trailer for the Chris Robinson directed project after the jump…

Looks epic.

Even better is that the group’s members and longtime manager serve as consultants and co-producers – guaranteeing a heightened degree of authenticity.

    Waisting money. Just make it a BET movie and call it a day. There is no need for it to have several episodes.
