News & Interviews for The New Edition Story: Season 1
The New Edition Story, which credits all six members of the group as executive producers, tells the story with verve and charm, meticulously re-creating videos and photo shoots and, more notably, creating rootable characters out of already-familiar stars.
As with N.W.A., the drama of just being in New Edition is part of the story's trainwreck/bootstrap appeal.
For a TV movie biopic it does get a little dramatic, but it's always entertaining, and a lot of that credit goes to the cast...You can tell there's passion behind it.
Familiarity doesn't lessen any bit of the power of BET's three-night, six-hour miniseries The New Edition Story.
The New Edition Story remains vibrant and clever. It takes a group that is arguably underrated and gives it a glowing showcase.
