Bobbi Kristina biopic hits screens in October

MOMMY AND ME: Bobbi Kristina, left, with mum Whitney Houston on 'Good Morning America' in 2009

THE TRAGIC and similar deaths of Whitney Houston and her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown will be relived once again, this time with a made-for-TV film about the young Brown, from American cable network, TV One.

Brown will be played by actress Joy Rovaris in Bobbi Kristina, which will appear on the US small screen on October 8 this year. Rovaris also appeared briefly in The New Edition Story, where she played the girlfriend of a young Ronnie De Voe.

Vivica A. Fox will play Brown's aunty in the biopic.

At the age of 22, Brown drowned in her bath at home in Georgia, US, in January 2015; eerily echoing the death of her mother Houston who was found dead almost exactly three years earlier in a hotel bathtub.
