Directed by Angela Bassett Whitney is set to air on January 17, 2014 on the Lifetime Network. After the horrible backlash from the Aaliyah movie, many are wondering if Mrs. Bassett will be able to deliver. Folks no need to question Angela’s delivery on this movie, from the looks of the trailer Angela has crossed all of her t’s and dotted all of her i’s. This movie looks like it is too good to be on Lifetime actually. Whitney is definitely giving a theater worthy performance. America‘s Next Top Model alum Yaya DaCosta is playing the hell out of Whitney. Make sure you see this flick. I think we can forgive Lifetime for that treacherous Aaliyah movie now.
