BET Set Premiere Date For ‘The Bobby Brown Story’

Published: Tuesday 12th Jun 2018 by Sam

BET hit quite the home-run with their mega-successful New Edition biopic and the network is re-upping with ‘The Bobby Brown Story.’

The two-night TV event will dial into the controversial narrative of the group’s headline-grabbing member Bobby Brown.

Woody McClain reprises the role of Brown from the New Edition telepic; he’ll appear alongside the likes of Gabrielle Dennis (who’ll play Whitney Houston), Mekhi Phifer, Laz Alonso, and Lance Gross.

The biopic promises an unfiltered insight into the highs, lows, and redemption of R&B’s most-notorious bad boy.

All corners of his story will be explored. Hence, viewers will bear witness to his solo run, rollercoaster relationship with Whitney, and his battles with substances.

Want to know when it’ll be hitting screens? Head below to find out…

BET have announced that the biopic will broadcast September 4th and 5th 2018.

A series of teasers have been released to whip up buzz:

With the network’s highly watched BET Awards set to air June 24th, it wouldn’t be surprising if a full-length trailer was released during the show. Time will tell.

Still, on paper the project looks all sorts of enticing. Especially with the talented list of names at its helm.

Kiel Adrian Scott has been tapped as director, while the screenplay comes courtesy of  ‘New Edition Story’ writer Abdul Williams. Also returning from the previous project is Jesse Collins – who once again as executive producer.

    I’m here for it! ?? In my opinion, Don’t Be Cruel is one of the top 5 best albums of all time! The songs are undeniable smashes! I can see exactly why Whitney was head over heels and gave him the cookies! Bobby was on??? The #1 album of 1989 overall in the United States! Black excellence!

    If possible can you send me a trailer with dates and time and tv channel . I will send it to the world and post it on social media to bring viewers. Any promotional material I can use or forward will be helpful.
