The New Edition Story Is Coming To The UK!
New Edition laid the foundation for how modern-day boy bands look, feel, and sound. Boyz II Men, N’SYNC, The Backstreet Boys, and New Kids On The Block all took their cues from Ronnie DeVoe, Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell & Johnny Gill. After 30 years of breaking hearts, New Edition finally gets the biopic that their stellar tenure in entertainment so richly deserves. This epic three-part miniseries follows the group from their humble beginnings as kids in Boston to global mega-stardom - weathering the highs and lows of controversy, personal changes, and the ultimate cost of fame.
Starring Bryshere Y. Gray as Mike Bivins, Luke James as Johnny Gill, Keith Powers as Ronnie Devoe, Algee Smith as Ralph Tresvant, Elijah Kelley as Ricky Bell and Woody McClain as Bobby Brown, The New Edition Story premieres on Thursday 2nd March from 9pmGMT on BET - Sky 187, Virgin 184 and Freesat 140.
