TV One revealed on Thursday afternoon that a made-for-TV biopic of Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s only child, will debut later this summer, E! News reports.
The film titled Bobbi Kristina presents 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 cable network stated.
Fans can get a preview of what they can expect in a new cast photo acquired by E! News. The role of Bobbi will be portrayed by Stuck in the Middle‘s Joy Rovaris while Grown Up‘s Nadji Jeter will take on the role of her boyfriend Nick Gordon.
Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Demetria McKinney will play Whitney’s character while The Wire‘s Hassan Jonson will take on Bobby. Vivica A. Fox will be cast as Whitney’s sister-in-law Pat Houston.
According to network, “Bobbi Kristina’s high-profile life—and untimely death—may have been shrouded in mystery, but this film will reveal her humor, quirks, deepest fears and longings. This film explores her fight to be seen, heard, loved and to survive.”
Bobby and Nick paid tribute to the late Bobbi Kristina on what would have been her 24th birthday last month.
“TODAY WE CELEBRATE YOU BABY GIRL #BOBBIKRISTINABROWN,” Bobby posted with several throwback pictures.
