According to a press release, the film give viewers a better understanding of Bobbi Kristina — the daughter of Houston and Bobby Brown — whose memory has been been overshadowed by the circumstances of her death.
“The tabloids painted a picture of two superstars who lived a tumultuous life, but we often forget that in the process a little girl had to grow up in a limelight that she did not choose,”said D’Angela Proctor, TV One Head of Original Programming & Production. “In its simplest form, Bobbi Kristina is a story about a beautiful mother-daughter relationship intertwined with both of their desires to be loved; one just happened to be a superstar and the other an innocent bystander to her parents’ fame.”
The film co-stars newcomer Joy Rovaris (Stuck in the Middle) as Bobby Kristina, singer Demetria McKinney (House of Payne, Saints and Sinners) as Whitney Houston, Nadji Jeter (Grown Ups, Last Man Standing) as Nick Gordon, Hassan Johnson (The Wire, E.R.) as Bobby Brown and Vivica A.
