Hoping to make us all forget that Aaliyah biopic ever happened, Lifetime is ready to release their Angela Bassett-directed biopic on the life of Whitney Houston — more specifically, her tumultuous relationship with Bobby Brown throughout her rise to fame.
Whitney, stars Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston and Arlen Escarpeta as Bobby.
The film’s trailer premiered earlier today via Buzzfeed. Get into it below!
Whitney, premieres January 17th at 9pm on Lifetime.
