BET has greenlit a three part miniseries of the monumental boy group New Edition and we have all the deets inside!
Apparently the biopic will be broken up into three parts and has all members ( Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvan) except for Bobby Brown listed as producers! In a press release the group said:
"It’s been a long time coming and that time is finally here! Now that we have signed the deal, New Edition’s journey will be captured in a three-night miniseries to tell our life story through our very own eyes. We are happy to have New Edition Enterprises collaborate with BET Networks’ Debra Lee and Stephen Hill along with Jesse Collins Entertainment.
From our beginning in the Orchard Park Projects in Boston to Hollywood and everything in between, just like the Temptations and the Jackson 5, we are ready to retrace our footsteps and show everyone how we got here.”
The Biopic is scheduled to start filming in 2016 and is still currently looking for a director however we can wait to watch!
