It was a star-studded affair at the Paramount Studios Theatre on Wednesday night as we celebrated Bobby Brown during the private screening of The Bobby Brown Story that will air on BET on September 4th and 5th.
The Bobby Brown Story comes from Abdul Williams, the same writer from The New Edition Story. Having seen the first episode this will definitely be another classic that we will watch for years to come. Bobby Brown who was very hands-on with the project wanted to show us a side of him that we did not know before. While watching you can feel the authenticity bleeding from the screen as each actor brings everything they have to each character.
Woody McClain who played Bobby Brown in The New Edition Story and now The Bobby Brown Story dug deep for his inner Bobby. Gabrielle Dennis plays Whitney like no other. She truly embodies the character. At the premiere, I asked her where she pulled from and she said that she prayed each day before going on set and felt that Whitney was with her every step of the way.
Learned so much that I didn’t know from this film about Bobby. He truly told the story his way. Brilliant casting by Robi Reed to get all of this dynamic talent and brilliant directing by Kiel Adrian Scott to pull out the best from these actors.
Make sure you tune in on September 4th and 5th at 9 pm on BET to see this dynamic story. Check out our exclusive interviews with some of the cast below.
