"From the iconic songs to scoring, the RedOne team completely and utterly delivered in every way on Whitney," director Angela Bassett said in a statement. "Their enthusiasm and masterful skill was‎ ‎matched only by their 24/7 desire to help me tell a compelling story -- I couldn't have had a better crew to get me over the finish line."

RedOne's team included producer-songwriters Travon Potts, Dan Sundquist and Mike "Wuff" Wofford.

Yaya DaCosta stars as Whitney Houston and Arlen Escarpeta as Bobby Brown in a tale that covers their celebrity, courtship and rocky marriage.
