BET’s ‘The Bobby Brown Story’ To Film in Atlanta (EXCLUSIVE)

BET’s The Bobby Brown Story is going to film in Atlanta, Georgia!

BET is ramping up productions for the latest TV movie, The Bobby Brown story, and we have the exclusive casting information for you. CAB Castings took to Facebook to break the news, “We are so excited to announce we will be the Extras Casting Department for the new BET miniseries #TheBobbyBrownStory filming in ATLANTA!!! “

The creative team behind The New Edition Story is bringing back the magic to the small screen. The new movie will pick up where The New Edition Story Left off.

From BET:

The Bobby Brown Story is a two-night journey that chronicles Bobby’s wild ride to success following his departure from New Edition, the making of his groundbreaking new jack swing classic “Don’t Be Cruel”, his passionate affair with fellow R&B megastar Janet Jackson, and of course, his marriage to superstar Whitney Houston and their tumultuous life in and out of the tabloids. Spanning 30 years of Bobby’s life, the story starts from the hard streets of Roxbury where he turned to a life of drug dealing before being given the chance to prove himself as a solo artist.

Woody McClain, who played Bobby in The New Edition Story, will reprise his role and much of the original creative team will be returning for the upcoming movie.
