Bravo has greenlighted "Being Bobby Brown," an unscripted series about the troubled pop star. As previously reported, the cable network had been in negotiations with Brown's production company, Brownhouze Entertainment, and B2 Entertainment, in recent months to put the series on air. Ten one-hour episodes were ordered in anticipation of airing "Brown" in the second quarter of next year.
The series will chronicle Brown's efforts to clean up his life after his numerous run-ins with the law. Also appearing in the documentary are Brown's wife, singer Whitney Houston, as well as his children from their marriage and previous relationships. Brown's brother Tommy, his personal manager, also is in the series.
"'Being Bobby Brown' will allow the public to see Brown outside the context of a pop icon and bad boy, rather, they'll witness an artist striving to clean up his life for his future and the future of his family," Bravo president Lauren Zalaznick said.
In related news, Houston is about to begin work on her seventh Arista studio album with assistance from longtime collaborator/BMG president Clive Davis. It will be her first new set since 2002's "Just Whitney."
