BET Announces New Edition Series

BET is partnering with New Edition for a three-part mini-series based on the iconic group’s legacy.

All of the members of the band, with the exception of Bobby Brown, will serve as consultants and executive producers, and they’re thrilled about the collaboration.

The group released the following joint statement:

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…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.

Produced by Jesse Collins, the project is expected to air in 2016, and the network will announce casting in the coming weeks.
