NJ's Whitney Houston is the Subject of Angela Bassett-directed Lifetime Channel Movie, "Whitney"

NJ's Whitney Houston's life will be chronicled in a movie appearing on Lifetime, a network which is now trying to go a step beyond the usual predictable yet enjoyable made-for-TV movie dramas that has up until this point has been it's hallmark. With "Whitney", directed by Angela Bassett, they are going the docu-drama route with a serious look at this extremely talented and beautiful performer's troubled yet spectacular life. From what I have read the family is not happy with the portrayal.

Whitney Houston spent much of her life in Jersey. She lived in Newark but moved out after a riot when she was 4. She moved to neighboring East Orange, NJ, where there is now a school named after her, The Whitney Elizabeth Houston
Academy of Creative and Performing Arts.

The movie will be shown on January 17th on Lifetime, and knowing Lifetime, probably aired several times after that.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Image from Facebook
