TV One has set an Oct. 8 date for the premiere of its original movie Bobbi Kristina, the network announced Monday.
The biopic, which focuses on the life and tragic death of the troubled daughter of music stars Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, stars Demetria McKinney (House of Payne, Saints and Sinners), Nadji Jeter (Grown Ups, Last Man Standing), Hassan Johnson (The Wire, E.R.), and Vivica A. Fox (Empire, Kill Bill).
Bobbi Kristina is directed by Ty Hodges and executive produced by Tracey Baker Simmons and Wanda Shelley, according to TV One.
“The tabloids painted a picture of two superstars who lived a tumultuous life, but we often forget that in the process a little girl had to grow up in a limelight that she did not choose,” D’Angela Proctor, TV One Head of Original Programming & Production said in a statement. “In its simplest form, Bobbi Kristina is a story about a beautiful mother-daughter relationship intertwined with both of their desires to be loved; one just happened to be a superstar and the other an innocent bystander to her parents’ fame.”
