BET’s The New Edition Story: World Premiere Screening & Conversation
7:00 PM PT
The Paley Center for Media proudly presents the World Premiere of BET’s ambitious three-part miniseries The New Edition Story. R&B supergroup New Edition helped establish the foundation for how modern-day boy bands look, feel, and sound. Boyz II Men, N’SYNC, The Backstreet Boys, and New Kids On The Block all took their cues from group members Ronnie DeVoe, Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, and Johnny Gill. After three decades, the group’s stellar tenure in entertainment is celebrated in a three-part miniseries which follows them from their humble beginnings as kids in Boston to global megastardom—weathering the highs and lows of controversy, personnel changes, and the often high cost of fame. Executive produced by Jesse Collins (Real Husbands of Hollywood) in conjunction with Bell, Bivins, DeVoe, Gill, Tresvant, and Brown, The New Edition Story will air as a six-hour, three-night event on January 24 to 26, 2017, at 9:00 pm ET/PT on BET.
