You already know that BET’s The New Edition Story was one of the most talked-about series this year, but the story isn’t finished just yet.
Once again, Bobby Brown is going solo — with The Bobby Brown Story, a new mini-series from BET set to hit the airwaves next fall.
Picking up where The New Edition Story left off, The Bobby Brown Story is a two-night journey that chronicles Bobby’s wild ride to success following his departure from New Edition, the making of his groundbreaking new jack swing classic “Don’t Be Cruel”, his passionate affair with fellow R&B megastar Janet Jackson, and of course, his marriage to superstar Whitney Houston and their tumultuous life in and out of the tabloids.
Spanning 30 years of Bobby’s life, the story starts from the hard streets of Roxbury where he turned to a life of drug dealing before being given the chance to prove himself as a solo artist.
Woody McClain, who played Bobby to perfection in The New Edition Story, will reprise his role, and much of the original creative team is coming back together for it as well.
Shortly after the announcement, McClain took to Instagram to share his excitement
