The first round of casting for the original miniseries The Bobby Brown Story, currently in production in Atlanta.
Previously announced Woody McClain will reprise his role as Bobby Brown.
Mekhi Phifer, Milton “Lil Rel” Howery, Lance Gross, Laz Alonso, Sandi McCree, T.K. Carter and Alyssa Goss are set to star in the two-night miniseries event slated to premiere September 2018.
With a career that spans from founding the R&B super group New Edition to a successful solo run, Bobby Brown’s life truly epitomizes the meaning of sex, drugs, and rock & roll.
Hailed as the King of R&B, Bobby Brown is undisputedly one of the genre’s original “bad boys.”
His hits may have kept him at the top of the charts, but his antics kept him on the front page.
The Bobby Brown Story is executive produced by Jesse Collins (The New Edition Story) for JCE Films, a division of Jesse Collins Entertainment; written by award-winning writer Abdul Williams (Lottery Ticket, The New Edition Story) and directed by award-winning director and Spike Lee protégé, Kiel Adrian Scott.
