Following the success of BET’s miniseries, “The New Edition Story,” BET announced back in April a spinoff project on the breakout star from the 80’s quintet – Bobby Brown. Aptly titled, “The Bobby Brown Story,” it will chronicle the talented but troubled singer’s exit from the popular ’80s boy band through his solo success, his affair with Janet Jackson and marriage to pop icon Whitney Houston, according to Deadline. Actor Woody McClain will reprise his role as the “My Prerogative” singer for next year’s small screen release. The network said The Bobby Brown Story will also be a story about redemption. Through sobriety, the singer learns to be a better man, husband and father — finding love again and remarrying in 2012. Forerunners for The New Edition Story, executive producer Jesse Collins and writer Abdul Williams will return onboard for the forthcoming special.
An official air date has yet to be announced.
