Woody McClain, the actor who played the R&B/pop singer in BET’s miniseries “The New Edition Story,” will reprise his role in the network’s two-part follow-up, for which Brown also serves as a producer.
“The Bobby Brown Story” will pick up where the New Edition mini left off. As noted by Deadline, “the story will chronicle the talented but troubled singer’s exit from the popular ’80s boy band New Edition through his solo success, his affair with Janet Jackson and his marriage to pop icon Whitney Houston. Spanning 30 years of Brown’s life, the new project follows his story 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.”
