Gabrielle Dennis Will Play Whitney Houston In BET’s ‘The Bobby Brown Story’

Hollywood, Hollywood News

Gabrielle Dennis has been selected to play Whitney Houston in BET’s two-part The Bobby Brown Story, the follow-up to the network’s highly-successful The New Edition Story.

She joins Woody McClain as Brown, alongside Mekhi Phifer, Lil Rel Howery, T.K. Carter, Laz Alonso, Lance Gross, Alyssa Goss and Sandi McCree.

According to Deadline, who first reported the news, the film “will showcase their successes and struggles during their turbulent relationship.”

The Bobby Brown Story will pick up where the New Edition mini left off. It will chronicle the talented but troubled singer’s exit from the popular ’80s boy band through his solo success, his affair with Janet Jackson and tabloid-fodder marriage to pop icon Whitney Houston.  Spanning 30 years of Brown’s life, the new project follows his story from the hard streets of Roxbury, where he turned to a life of drug dealing before being given the chance to prove himself as a solo artist.

Dennis, who was a series regular on Fox’s Rosewood, will star as villainess Tilda Johnson in Luke Cage Season 2.
