BET’s The New Edition Story is a three-part biographical miniseries that chronicles the history of, you guessed it, boy band movement progenitors New Edition. The musical dramas of late have continued to raise the bar in terms of production value, authenticity and star-powered involvement, but the journeys they take us on are usually fictional. This particular endeavor shares quite a few similarities (in a good way) with popular musical dramas like Empire and The Get Down, with one vital distinction: this story is true. I’ve only seen Part One, but I’m hooked.
