Angela Bassett will make her directorial debut on Lifetime's original telemovie "Whitney Houston" which is slated to premiere next year.
The story will chronicle the relationship between the late singer and Bobby Brown, from the time they first met and the height of their celebrity to their courtship and tumultuous marriage. Whether it will include events up to Houston's death in February 2012 is unclear.
In a statement, Bassett says: "I have such regard for both Whitney's and Bobby's amazing talents and accomplishments, and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story. Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I'm beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world."
