BET made history when they premiered the 3 night miniseries “The New Edition Story”. Millions tuned in and we are still talking about it. Lifetime needs to take some lesson from this production, because this is how you produce a biopic. WE have heard the generic version of the New Edition Story many times, but this biopic was full of shockers. Here are 5 things we learned from the biopic.
1.Ralph Tresvant was offered a solo deal by Maurice Star. He decided that he would take the deal, with one exception. He wanted all of his boys to be in on the deal as well.
2. Michael Bivin’s orchestrated Johnny Gill joining New Edition.
3. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis influenced the creation of BBD.
4.Ricky Bell was addicted to drug. (Real Shocker)
5. Wedding really do bring people together. All 6 members reunited at Ronnie Devoe’s wedding.
