The highly-anticipated Bobbi Kristina original film will make its debut Sunday, October 8 at 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT, on TV One. The biopic stars Demetria McKinney, Vivica A. Fox, Nadji Jeter, Hassan Johnson and Joy Rovaris as Bobbi Kristina.
Beginning immediately after the passing of her mother, the legend, Whitney Houston, the film shows Bobbi coming to terms with her mother’s death all while dealing with her own personal struggles. Bobbi Kristina offers a rare glimpse into the world of this young woman whose brief life and untimely end remain covered in mystery.
“The tabloids painted a picture of two superstars who lived a tumultuous life, but we often forget that in the process a little girl had to grow up in a limelight that she did not choose. In its simplest form, Bobbi Kristina is a story about a beautiful mother-daughter relationship intertwined with both of their desires to be loved; one just happened to be a superstar and the other an innocent bystander to her parents’ fame,” said D’Angela Proctor, TV One Head of Original Programming & Production.
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.
