Like Lifetime, TV One is stepping into the biopic game. Unlike Lifetime, their first foray into this world doesn’t look like it will be an abysmal mess.
Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story stars Teyonah Parris (Chi-Raq, Survivor’s Remorse) in the title role and will feature a special cameo appearance from Grammy Award-nominated R&B songstress Miki Howard herself. The story is inspired by TV One’s signature series Unsung.
The highly anticipated biopic will also star Darius McCrary (The Leftovers, Family Matters) as Gerald Levert; Vanessa Bell Calloway (Shameless, To Hell and Back) as Miki’s mother Josephine Howard; Gary Dourdan (CSI, Being Mary Jane) as Augie Johnson; LisaRaye McCoy (Single Ladies, All of Us) as Sylvia Rhone; and Amari Cheatom (Django Unchained, Night Catches Us) as Eddie Phelps.
Take a look at the trailer below.
Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story, title after Miki’s biggest hit, will premiere on Sunday, June 12 at 7 p.m. ET (encore presentation at 9 p.m. ET). Will you be tuning in?
