‘The New Edition Story’ has been EVERYTHING. We caught up with BBD, the actors playing the members of the group, director Chris Robinson, La La Anthony and more to get the scoop on how they pulled it all off. Get our exclusive interviews inside…
Don’t know about y’all, but we’ve been LIVING while watching this ‘New Edition’ biopic. BET’s three night mini-series hit a ratings high with 4.4 million viewers on night one, and now we see why.
YBF Correspondent Kalia Silva-Phillips (@myeye4diy) caught up with BBD, director Chris Robinson, the ridiculously cute kid actors who KILLED their roles and more. We get the scoop on the actors’ 3 week bootcamp that Luke James said was HELL, Ronnie Devoe dishes on exactly why they were all 100% down for this biopic, and why they were on set working one-on-one with the actors.
Plus, now that we know Mama Bivens, Mama Devoe, Mama Brown and the rest of the mamas are the blackest mamas ever (we’ve heard every threat they tossed from our OWN mamas), we had to talk to them. Yvette Nicole Brown (Mama Bivens) and LaLa Anthony (Mama DeVoe) tell us their personal NE obsessions and more!
Check out the video interviews above!
