With the success of The New Edition Story, another biopic is in the works with Viacom.
90’s R&B group Jodeci will be next to follow in the new trend of biopics. Jodeci member Mr. Delvin confirmed the news during an interview with San Francisco’s Q102.1 radio station.
“That’s in the works already,” Mr. Dalvin said. “They started the process last September — we just finished the script and we’re going into production next month, so we’re looking at an end of the year release.”
Mr. Delvin also announced that casting will begin very soon. More biopics will surface, and rightfully so. The New Edition Story resulted in record ratings for BET. According Deadline, parts one and three of the miniseries were the network’s highest-rated and most-watched telecasts in five years.
