After all of the backlash Lifetime Movie Network received from the Aaliyah biopic, they’ll return with another depiction of the life of a woman who is the queen of pop, Whitney Houston. Angela Bassett is the director behind this film & she’s phenomenal herself, so she should be the sole reason Lifetime can say that they’ve redeemed themselves.
Yaya Dacosta, who we all know from cycle 3 of America’s Next Top Model, will star as Whitney. The film will cover her life starting from her singing as a little girl in her church choir, her relationship with Bobby Brown, her battle with drug addiction, all the way up until her death. The movie will air on LTM on the 3rd anniversary of her death, January 17th, 2015. Watch the trailer above.
