傳媒報導,繼惠妮的傳記電視電影之後,惠妮愛女芭比的生平,也正在拍攝成傳記電影將於今年夏天在美國的有線電視頻道推出。 She was the only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.

And the tragic story of Bobbi Kristina Brown is getting the TV-biopic treatment this summer. The cast for the TV One special, titled Bobbi Kristina, was revealed for the first time on Friday.


The 22-year-old’s brief time in the spotlight will be played out in the true-life-tale.

She was found face down in a bathtub in her Georgia home on January 31, 2015, just days shy of the three-year anniversary of her own mother's passing.

Bobbi Kristina died surrounded by her family in July 2015 - after nearly six months in a coma, after she was found by her boyfriend Nick Gordon.

The network announced plans for the film during their annual upfront presentation, telling reporters the project would offer an 'intimate look at the highs and lows of parental, familial and romantic love complicated by fame through the eyes of a sensitive, vulnerable young woman.'

'Bobbi Kristina’s high-profile life- and untimely death - may have been shrouded in mystery, but this film will reveal her humor, quirks, deepest fears and longings,' the network explained, adding: 'This film explores her fight to be seen, heard, loved and to survive.'

Disney channel star Joy Rovaris - known for her role on network’s popular show Stuck in the Middle - will be playing Bobbi Kristina.

Singer Demetria McKinney, who has previously cameoed on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, will step into Houston’s shoes.

The Wire‘s Hassan Johnson has been cast as Bobby Brown.

Grammy-winning superstar Whitney filed for divorce after a tumultuous union with Bobby and received custody of their then 14-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Vivica A. Fox stars as Pat Houston, while Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Gordon will be played by Nadji Jeter.

Gordon has controversial ties to Bobbi Kristina, having been found liable in her wrongful death case and ordered to pay $36 million to Bobbi Kristina’s estate in September.

Although he’s never been criminally charged in her death, court documents obtained by People showed Judge T. Jackson Bedford of Fulton County reached the judgment not by considering the facts of the case, but because Gordon failed to respond or appear in court for his civil hearings.

A criminal investigation is 'still ongoing,' a source in the Fulton Country District Attorney’s office previously told People.

In April 2016, a judge unsealed Bobbi Kristina's autopsy report, which showed that her face being immersed in water, along with drug intoxication, led to her death.

Cannabis, alcohol, sedatives and anxiety medications in her system all contributed to her passing but the 'underlying cause' of death was 'immersion associated with drug intoxication'.

The medical examiner couldn't determine whether her death was an accident.
