Airing on Sunday, October 8 at 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT on TV One is  “Bobbi Kristina,” inspired by the life of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s only child.

The film stars Joy Revaris as Bobbi Kristina, Demetria McKinney as Whitney Houston, Vivica A. Fox as Pat Houston, Nadji Jeter as Nick Gordon, Hassan Johnson as Bobby Brown and Le’Azionna Braden as a young Bobbi Kristina.

The film is directed by former child actor Ty Hodges (Don’t Look Under The Bed, Material Girls and Charlie, Trevor and Girl Savannah) with screenplay by Rhonda Baraka. Baraka previously wrote the TV One movies Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story, The Secret She Kept, and For the Love of Ruth. Executive Producers Tracey Baker Simmons and Wanda Shelley, creators of the docuseries’ “Being Bobby Brown” and “The Houstons,” developed the underlying story.

Beginning immediately after the passing of her mother, the story delves into Bobbi Kristina’s struggle to come to terms with Houston’s sudden departure and the complexities of her own life. “Bobbi Kristina” presents the first three-dimensional look at a story — and a life — that deserve better. In 2012, Whitney Houston’s tragic demise put her entire family in the worldwide media spotlight, with most of the glare falling on her grieving daughter, Bobbi Kristina. Krissy became one of the main characters in the story of Houston’s death and its devastating aftermath as she struggled with her grief, her personal relationships, upholding her mother’s legacy and her plans for the future. “Bobbi Kristina” offers a rare glimpse into the world of this young woman whose brief life and untimely end remain shrouded in mystery.

“Bobbi Kristina is a passion project for us because we watched Krissy grow up from the time she was 10 years old and until she became an amazing young adult. The world did not have the opportunity to know and love Krissy the way we did,” said Baker-Simmons, executive producer, alongside Wanda Shelley in Simmons Shelley Entertainment. “Krissy, like most young adults, shared one side of herself with her family and another side with her closest friends. This movie is told from that perspective.”
