    Default New Edition Biopic Miniseries

    In the early 1980s, after the Jackson 5 and before *Jodeci, New Edition owned the hearts of tween girls. The Boston group, comprised of Ronnie DeVoe, Ralph Tresvant, Bobby Brown, Michael Bivins and Ricky Bell, broke onto the scene with hits like "Candy Girl" and "Cool It Now," but the members soon moved on to solo projects and, in some cases, careers defined by controversy.

    Now, BET Networks is collaborating with Jesse Collins and the members of New Edition for a three-part mini-series event based on the iconic group. Johnny Gill, who joined the group after Bobby Brown left, Tresvant, DeVoe, Bivins and Bell will all serve as consultants and executive producers on the project, which is slated to air in 2016.

    “It's been a long time coming and that time is finally here! Now that we have signed the deal, New Edition's journey will be captured in a three night miniseries to tell our life story through our very own eyes," says New Edition in a joint statement. "We are happy to have New Edition Enterprises collaborate with BET Networks’ Debra Lee and Stephen Hill along with Jesse Collins Entertainment. From our beginning in the Orchard Park Projects in Boston to Hollywood and everything in between, just like The Temptations and The Jackson Five — we are ready to retrace our footsteps and show everyone how we got here. For the fans all over the world, this one's for you.”

    Adds BET's President of Programming Stephen Hill, “Personally, my relationship with New Edition goes back to being among the first to play ‘Candy Girl’ on my college radio station, so I’m ecstatic that BET is the place where the guys wanted to come to tell their complete, dynamic story.” Hill continues, “Everyone’s been waiting for the New Edition saga to be told in all its triumphs and heartbreaks and we can’t wait to bring it to the screen.”

    Default Cast is set for New Edition biopic

    Filming started couple weeks ago

    A New Edition biopic is in the works, and BET Networks has announced the cast who’ll portray the Boston pop group. Child and adult actors were cast in the leading roles in the three-part miniseries, which goes back to the boys’ childhoods and follows the group’s rise from Roxbury’s Orchard Park housing projects to music superstardom.

    Bryshere Y. Gray and Dante Hoagland will play Michael Bivins; Elijah Kelley and Caleb McLaughlin will play Ricky Bell; Keith Powers and Myles Truitt will play Ronnie DeVoe; Algee Smith and Jahi Winston will play Ralph Tresvant;Woody McClain and Tyler Williams will play Bobby Brown; and Luke James will play Johnny Gill. This biopic should be legit, as it carries serious street cred: DeVoe, Brown, Bell, Bivins, Tresvant, and Gill are co-producers, along with New Edition’s manager-choreographer-mentor Brooke Payne. The miniseries is to premiere on BET in 2017.

    I think that would be Bryshere Y. Gray hes got the role for Mike Bivins, Also Keith Powers from 'Straight Outta Compton' got the role for Ronnie, couldnt see him for that role at first but ive seen some recent production pics and it looks like hes thinned his eyebrows to look more like Ronnie
