The late Bobbi Kristina Brown, who died July 26, 2015 in a metro Atlanta hospice, will be the subject of a new original film due out this summer.

TV One announced plans to air “Bobbi Kristina,” starring Joy Rovaris in the title role with “Real Housewives of Atlanta” personality Demetria McKinney playing Bobbi Kristina’s mother, the late Whitney Houston and Hassan Johnson cast as her father, R&B singer Bobby Brown. Vivica Fox will play Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, Pat Houston.

“Told through a mix of memories and dramatic moments, the film offers an intimate look at the highs and lows of parental, familial and romantic love complicated by fame through the eyes of a sensitive, vulnerable young woman,” the network announced.

Bobbi Kristina died at 22 after months in hospital, then hospice care after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in January 2015.

“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,” Pat Houston, her legally appointed co-guardian, said in a statement at the time of her death. “We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
