LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Lifetime TV channel says it will air a movie about Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's relationship, with actress Angela Bassett set to direct.
Lifetime said Thursday that the movie will follow the couple through their first meeting and tumultuous marriage, and Houston's rise to fame.
