Following the success of BET’s The New Edition Story, Viacom, the parent company of both BET and Vh1, is looking to capitalize on that. Another R&B group will be getting their story told on the small screen. It’s been revealed that VH1 will be producing a Jodeci biopic, one that should arrive by the end of 2017.
“That’s in the works already,” Mr. Dalvin said during an interview with Bay Area radio station Q102.3. “They started the process last September — we just finished the script and we’re going into production next month, so we’re looking at an end of the year release…VH1 owns the rights so far.” As far as any casting decisions, Dalvin said that casting news “will be announced soon.” Which definitely indicates that they are currently in the process of finding the right actors.
