The New Edition Story (Clips & Conversation)

Description

New Edition laid the foundation for how the modern-day boy band looks, feels, and sounds. Boyz II Men, N’SYNC, The Backstreet Boys, and New Kids On The Block all took their cues from Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike and Ralph. After 30 years of breaking hearts on the record and from the stage, New Edition finally gets the biopic that their stellar tenure in entertainment so richly deserves. This 3-part miniseries follows the group from their middle school lunchroom to global megastardom - weathering the highs and lows of controversy, personnel changes, and the ultimate cost of fame.
