We’re going back to the beginning of where it all started. We’ll get to know New Edition and how this group of mega talents were joined together. Although there is no air date yet, The New Edition story will premiere in 2017 on BET as a three part miniseries. It will chronicle the legendary group’s catalogue of R&B hits and the history of the drama that came with their rise into stardom. Empire’s Bryshere Gray will star as Michael Bivins and R&B singer-songwriter Luke James will take on the role of Johnny Gill. Woody McClain, Elijah Kelley, Keith Powers and Algee Smith also star as Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Ronnie Devoe and Ralph Tresvant respectively.
