With the Whitney biopic being less than three weeks away, Lifetime is releasing sneak peeks from the film probably in the hopes of reassuring viewers that they won’t be disappointed with the finished product. The network may be feeling the pressure to make sure that this film is received better than November’s debut of the Aaliyah biopic Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B. Fans of Aaliyah complained that her biopic was poorly cast and produced.
So far the videos and photos released seem to have had a positive impact on the expectations of those planning to tune in to Whitney when it airs on January 17th at 8pm. More footage has been released that may add to the anticipation. Check out the most recent clip released to Entertainment Tonight of Yaya Dacosta, who is playing Whitney, singing one of Ms. Houston’s hits, “I’m Your Baby Tonight” below.
I’m ready for this one! Are you?
