Producer-songwriter RedOne makes his film music producing and scoring debut with the Lifetime Original Movie Whitney, which premieres Jan. 17.

"From the iconic songs to scoring, the RedOne team completely and utterly delivered in every way on Whitney," director Angela Bassett said in a statement. "Their enthusiasm and masterful skill was‎ ‎matched only by their 24/7 desire to help me tell a compelling story — I couldn't have had a better crew to get me over the finish line."

RedOne's team included producer-songwriters Travon Potts, Dan Sundquist and Mike "Wuff" Wofford.

Yaya DaCosta stars as Whitney Houston and Arlen Escarpeta as Bobby Brown in a tale that covers their celebrity, courtship and rocky marriage.
