ICYMI… Be sure to WATCH the original TV ONE movie BOBBI KRISTINA on October 8th! The film stars newcomer Joy Rovaris and aims to tell the real story of Bobbi Kristina Brown AKA “Krissy”… the only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, who died too young, and whose memory has been overshadowed by the circumstances of her death.
Opposite Rovaris, BOBBI KRISTINA stars Demetria McKinney (House of Payne, Saints and Sinners) who delivers an uncanny performance as she embodies the heart, flair and essence of the legendary Whitney Houston.
The film also stars Nadji Jeter (Grown Ups, Last Man Standing) as Nick Gordon, Hassan Johnson (The Wire, E.R.) as Bobby Brown, and Vivica A. Fox (Empire, Kill Bill) as Pat Houston. Le’Azionna Braden makes her screen debut as young Bobbi Kristina.
The film is directed by former child actor Ty Hodges (Don’t Look Under The Bed, Material Girls and Charlie, Trevor and Girl Savannah) with screenplay by Rhonda Baraka. Baraka previously wrote the TV One movies Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story, The Secret She Kept, and For the Love of Ruth. Executive Producers Tracey Baker Simmons and Wanda Shelley, creators of the docu-series’ “Being Bobby Brown” and “The Houstons,” developed the underlying story.
Don’t miss Bobbi Kristina On Sunday, October 8 at 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT, TV!!
