As part of this Saturday’s world premiere of its Original Movie Event “Whitney,” Lifetime has announced that the network will air the one-hour special “Bobby Brown: Remembering Whitney,” following the movie’s broadcast debut.
Scheduled to air this Saturday at 10pm ET/PT, “Bobby Brown: Remembering Whitney” will feature an exclusive, no-holds-barred interview between Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown and Shaun Robinson, weekend co-anchor and correspondent for “Access Hollywood.” The conversation will cover the couple’s powerfully intense relationship, while divulging Brown’s first-hand account of their marriage, from their greatest accomplishments and happiest moments to what really drove their romance together… and apart.
The special will be produced by Peacock Productions.
Marking Angela Bassett’s directorial debut, “Whitney” chronicles the headline-making relationship between the iconic singer, actress, producer and model, Whitney Houston (played by Yaya DaCosta) and singer and songwriter Bobby Brown (Arlen Escarpeta) – from the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity, to their courtship and tumultuous marriage.
Houston’s vocal performances in the film are sung by Deborah Cox. Music featured in the film includes Houston’s hits “The Greatest Love of All,” “I’m Your Baby Tonight,” “I’m Every Woman” and “I Will Always Love You” as well as Brown’s “Every Little Step.”
Produced by The Sanitsky Company, “Whitney” is executive produced by Larry Sanitsky (“Betty & Coretta”). Shem Bitterman (“Betty & Coretta”) wrote the script.
