An exclusive sneak preview of “The New Edition story” will screen in Boston Jan. 7, and Bobby Brown and Bell Biv DeVoe will be there.
Lucky fans who win tickets to the event will have an opportunity to see the biopic that was co-produced by all six of the members of New Edition — Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill, Ralph Tresvant, and Brown — and the group’s longtime manager and original choreographer, Brooke Payne. It will air on BET as a six-hour, three-night miniseries Jan. 24-26.
In addition to the Boston screening, BET Networks announced that previews will be held in Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and New York
The Boston screening will take place at the AMC Boston Common 19, and will be followed by a Q&A session with members of the group and the cast of “The New Edition Story.” Bell, Bivins, Devoe, and Brown are all expected to attend, along with cast members Algee Smith (who portrays Tresvant) and Luke James (who plays Gill).
