'The New Edition Story': BET's Movie Cast Members

Group members Ralph Tresvant, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill, and Bobby Brown, were all in attendance, as veteran hitmaker Jimmy Jam, who produced many of N.E.'s biggest hits, including "Can You Stand the Rain" and "If It Isn't Love", gave a heartwarming speech at the ceremony as well as BET's President of Original Programming, Stephen Hill.

During their heyday, the group infused rap and hip-hop into their music and laid the foundations for a new genre known as new jack swing in the 1980s.

The group formed in 1978 and rose to fame with hits like "Candy Girl", "Cool It Now" and "Mr. Telephone Man".

The three-part TV series will premiere on Black Entertainment Television (BET) on Tuesday. They're challenged with something that no one else has ever done.

"I wanted to do New Edition because when you look, they're a supergroup".

That all six members of New Edition had a hand in the miniseries's genesis likely helped shape the nuanced depiction of the band's successes and stumbles; thanks to fine performances by the actors and New Edition's killer songs, though, "The New Edition Story" rises above the typical musical biopic.

The New Edition Story is going to pack more than 40 years of music history into those three episodes.

What keeps bringing them back together, this brotherhood, is also what makes the miniseries so engaging. In the first night's installment that was given to critics for review, we see the sweeter side of the group, starting when they were all young kids in Boston competing in talent contests and still feeling that "Popcorn Love" in their hearts. With The New Edition Story, BET has set the bar mighty high for us.

Tank: My young thunder cat Luke James (who plays Johnny Gill). "And what they had to go through to be who they are now", McLaughlin added. "I don't know if ya'll know me, but I got a little cry in me so for me just watching it and being alive to be able to see it - to be able to see what my life was and what my life has become... is special", he admitted. This movie is about New Edition versus the music industry and how they survived it.
