It's been a long time coming and that time is finally here! Now that we have signed the deal, New Edition’s journey will be captured in a three-night miniseries to tell our life story through our very own eyes. We are happy to have New Edition Enterprises collaborate with BET Networks’ Debra Lee and Stephen Hill along with Jesse Collins Entertainment. From our beginning in the Orchard Park Projects in Boston to Hollywood and everything in between, just like the Temptations and the Jackson Five, we are ready to retrace our footsteps and show everyone how we got here. For the fans all over the world, this one’s for you.
New Edition will be separated into three parts, with plans to start production in May. The tentative air date is in 2017
