Premieres continue this week on Sunday, March 11 starting at 9/8C with Unsung: Blue Magic and Uncensored: Nia Long. R&B quintet Blue Magic stands as the last of the great vocal groups from the 1970s, and all five original members reunited for the first time since 1982 to tell their incredible story on Unsung. A stunning pop culture darling, Hollywood leading lady and three-time NAACP award winner Nia Long's run of success spans three decades. The journey to get there, however, was a turbulent one, and she's telling her story on Uncensored this Sunday at 10/9C.

Through first-hand accounts, interviews with family and friends, and archival footage, each episode of TV One’s signature series Unsung sheds much-deserved light on some of the most influential and talented R&B, soul, funk, hip hop, disco, and gospel artists of the last 30 years. Also featuring Deborah Cox, Avant, Shirley Caesar, Brand Nubian, Trick Daddy and Lost Boyz, season 12 of TV One's critically acclaimed and award-winning Unsung uncovers the personal triumphs and struggles of these musical legends.

In its first season, Uncensored dives deep into the lives of your favorite personalities as they reveal secrets to their success, obstacles they've faced, and how they manage this new world of social media that has helped but sometimes haunted their careers. The 10-episode autobiographical series gives unprecedented access to stars of film, television, music, and pop culture, including La La Anthony, Snoop Dogg, NeNe Leakes, Charlamagne Tha God, Le'Andria Johnson, and more as they personally reveal their own stories, in their own words, in the places their stories unfolded.

TV ONE’S BOBBI KRISTINA PREMIERES #1 IN TIME SLOT AMONG AA AND RANKS AS NETWORK’S #3 ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERE OF ALL TIME ACROSS ALL DEMOS

FOR THE NIGHT, BOBBI KRISTINA HAD A COMBINED REACH OF 2.2 MILLION UNIQUE VIEWERS P2+

SILVER SPRING, MD – October 10, 2017 – The premiere of TV One’s original film, Bobbi Kristina, premiered at #1 among African Americans on ad-supported cable in the Sunday 7pm-9pm timeslot: (HH, P25-54, W25-54, P18-49, W18-49, P2+). The film now ranks as TV One’s third most watched original movie premiere ever, across all key demos. The three airings of Bobbi Kristina on premiere night had a combined reach of 2.2 Million Unique Viewers 2+. TV One will air an encore presentation of the highly anticipated film tonight, October 10 at 8 p.m. ET and Wednesday, October 11 at 10 p.m. ET.

Driven by Bobbi Kristina, TV One was the #3 Rated non-sports Ad Supported Cable Net from 7pm-9pm among Adult W25-54. This was also the network’s best Sunday Primetime Performance since the record-setting debut of Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story (6/12/16). Additionally on Twitter, the #BobbiKristina premiere trended nationally, ranking as high as #3 nationally.

Beginning immediately after the passing of her mother, this poignant story delves into Bobbi Kristina’s struggle to come to terms with Houston’s sudden departure and the complexities of her own life. Starring breakout Joy Rovaris in the title role, 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. Krissi 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.

Opposite Rovaris, Bobbi Kristina stars Demetria McKinney who delivers an uncanny performance as she embodies the heart, flair and essence of the legendary Whitney Houston. The film also stars Nadji Jeter as Nick Gordon, Hassan Johnson as Bobby Brown, and Vivica A. Fox as Pat Houston. Le'Azionna Braden makes her screen debut as young Bobbi Kristina.

The film is directed by Ty Hodges, with screenplay by Rhonda Baraka.  Executive Producers Tracey Baker Simmons and Wanda Shelley, creators of the docu-series' "Being Bobby Brown" and "The Houstons," developed the underlying story.

Bobbi Kristina is produced for TV One by Eric Tomosunas (executive producer), Keith Neal and James Seppelfrick of Swirl Films. Casting was provided by Leah Daniels Butler. For TV One, Donyell McCullough is Senior Director of Talent & Casting; Robyn Greene-Arrington is VP of Original Programming and Executive in Charge of Production, and D’Angela Proctor is Head of Original Programming and Production.

Film Reviews
“’When Love Kills’ moves along really fast. The story of a down-on-her-luck single mother trying to make it, while getting caught up in drama and violence, is gripping and compelling. It’s well written and unfolds organically, with strong performances, camera work, storytelling, and pacing that build to a feverish, twist ending.  – Shadow and Act
“This movie’s best feature is its telling of the truth in such an honest and vulnerable way that you really feel like you know Falicia Blakely a little bit more than when you read the story back in 2002.” – After Buzz TV
“TV One looks to have a solid hit on their hands with their film, ‘When Love kills: The Falicia Blakely Story.’ The movie follows former stripper and single mother, Falicia Blakely…and her tragic and shocking love tale.” – EUR Web
