Many Topics Are Discussed in “The New Edition Story.”
Although Lifetime’s music biopics tend to generate a lot of buzz (I, for one, can’t wait for Britney Ever After to air), the current musical event on BET has all the real-life drama you could want with a lot less schtick.
On Tuesday, January 24 at 9pm, the premiere of The New Edition Story will air. The film will premiere at 12:01 a.m. ET on BET and will feature one of the most popular boy bands of all time.
But I’m curious as to how many episodes The New Edition Story will have and how much of the band’s career it will cover.
Given that the group formed over 40 years ago and its influence is still felt in the music industry today.
The band takes a break while filming the music video for “If It Isn’t Love,” the lead song from their upcoming fifth studio album. They’re chatting comfortably in a relaxed atmosphere, and everyone seems at ease.
The spectator is given the impression that everything is well because of the sunny atmosphere and the friendly expressions of the characters.
Again, the show had progressed that far — four hours in, mind you — and I still didn’t feel connected to any of the characters or the show overall. Then someone dropped the axe.
