TV One has released the trailer for their latest biopic, Bobbi Kristina, which examines the life of the daughter of late icon Whitney Houston.
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s life will be laid bare in the biopic, which examines how she dealt with her mother’s death and legacy.
Brown passed away in 2015, five years after her mother’s death. Her death led to an investigation and wrongful death suit against Nick Gordon, Brown’s fiancé. Gordon was ordered to pay $36 million to Brown’s family in 2016.
Discussing Brown and the biopic, D’Angela Proctor, TV One Head of Original Programming & Production, said in a statement, “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.”
