On Monday, the group was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a fine overture for BET's upcoming three-part miniseries, "The New Edition Story", which is sure to put the group's contributions into proper context.
Longtime fans of New Edition have anticipated its premiere since it was announced that the biopic would air. Fortunately, they proved that they could "stand the rain", only to have to deal with a far more insidious enemy: infighting. Their mothers essentially ran their careers, but the boys themselves signed the contracts. But, in a story we've heard before, their fame didn't quite equate with them seeing a lot of money. Their new manager, Gary Evans (Michael Rapaport), all but oozes phoniness as he first promises they'll be huge stars and later explains that if they'd read their contracts, they would have seen they were virtually indentured servants to their record label. And to Evans as well, of course.

As written by Abdul Williams and directed by Chris Robinson, The New Edition Story picks up the story at its roots, in the Roxbury section of Boston, where Bobby Brown, Michael Bivens, and Ricky Bell form a vocal group that expands into a quintet in the wake of the Jackson 5's massive success.
"It's good to have a brotherhood like that", Algee Smith who plays Ralph Tresvant told Billboard.
For some of the actors, who have a musical background like Elijah Kelley and Luke James, the task wasn't as daunting, but for actor Keith Powers (Ronnie DeVoe), it was the ultimate challenge.
By 1990, it seems like the group New Edition no longer exists.
We may easily suspend disbelief here, as with any showbiz biography, because that's the nature of the subgenre. But from there, it throws back to when the group was just starting out in the Orchard Park projects, when their interest in singing and dancing solidified into a career.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
