After scoring critical high notes with its biopics on Miki Howard and Bobbi Kristina respectively, TV One is taking another swing at the bat – this time in partnership with Swirl Films via the highly anticipated ‘Bobby DeBarge Story.’
Exploring the tumultuous life of the eldest sibling of the R&B super group, DeBarge, Bobby – also the former lead singer of 70’s R&B band Switch – will see his life story retold with highlights displaying the singer’s rise to the dizzying heights of fame before experiencing the perils of a publicized fall from grace.
Roshon Fegan (best known for his recurring role as “Isaiah Hambrick” on hit OWN television series “Greenleaf“) has been tapped as the flick’s lead. See the trailer inside:
Due to premiere on June 9, the film also stars the likes of Tyra Ferrell, Adrian Marcel, Big Boi, and singer Lloyd.
