NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - "When you watch the movie, everything you didn't know, you will know," said singer Ricky Bell about the new BET mini-series, 'The New Edition Story.'
The rise of the wildly popular 1990s boy band featuring Bobby Brown, Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill is told in the three-part series.
While the group tried to keep a clean, public image, even breaking away from Brown and the others to form, Bell Biv DeVoe, things weren't always what they seemed.
"It (drama) did go on, but we never used it for publicity. We gave our fans such a good wholesome image since we were 14 and we wanted to maintain it. But now is the time to peel the layer back,” said Bivins.
'The New Edition Story' begins Tuesday night at 9 p.m.
