Watch First Trailer for Lifetime's Whitney Houston Biopic
Whitney Houston's impressive career highlights and turbulent personal life are at the center of Lifetime's first Whitney trailer.
The biopic tells the story of the singing sensation's rise to fame, along with her relationship with Bobby Brown.
"I am putting everything on the line — my career, everything," Houston tells Brown in a heated scene in the trailer.
Yaya DaCosta stars as Houston, while Arlen Escarpeta plays Brown and Mark Rolston is music exec Clive Davis. The project marks Angela Bassett's directorial debut.
Whitney airs on Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime. The promo can be seen below.
