BET sets premiere date for the Bobby Brown Story. With the success of the New Edition biopic we have been waiting patiently for a premiere date for the Bobby Brown story. Wait no more, because BET just announced the date for the movie starring Woody McCain who played Bobby Brown in the New Edition story will air September 4th and September 5th. I know we have seen movies on Lifetime (Whitney Houston) and others that touched on Bobby Brown but this one is endorsed by Bobby Brown himself. Yay! This one should be good.
