Peter Kramer/NBCToni Braxton has already told her life-story in her first book, Unbreak My Heart: A Memoir, which was released in May. But now, the singer is the newest celebrity to be featured in Lifetime’s high-profile biopics.
According to Variety, the network has ordered a narrative based around the life of Grammy-winning diva, titled Unbreak My Heart, which is based on her memoir.
Actor Vondie Curtis Hall will direct the film, which will chronicle Toni’s rise to fame, illness, financial troubles and divorce while navigating her son’s autism and family struggles.
Braxton has signed on to executive produce and appear in the film, which is set to begin production later this year.
