BET has cast Gabrielle Dennis to play iconic diva Whitney Houston in the two-part “Bobby Brown” miniseries starring Woody McClain that’s set for a September premiere.

McClain is reprising his role as Brown in “The New Edition Story,” which broke BET ratings records when it aired in January 2017. “The Bobby Brown Story” picks up where that movie left off, following Brown’s successful solo run, Page Six reports.

It will also showcase Bobby and Whitney’s highs and lows and struggles during their turbulent relationship. The couple was married from 1992 to 2007.

“The Bobby Brown Story” is executive produced by Jesse Collins (“The New Edition Story”) for JCE Films, a division of Jesse Collins Entertainment; written by Abdul Williams (“Lottery Ticket,” “The New Edition Story”) and directed by Spike Lee protégé Kiel Adrian Scott.
