Pretty much everyone on the planet has heard or seen how Whitney Houston spiraled out of control in recent years, ultimately leading up to her passing. Now this tragic story is coming to the small screen.

First time director Angela Basset made the movie simply titled "Whitney" and it gives the viewer a behind the scenes look at her crazy and tragic life. I did read that Whitney's mom Cissy was not happy with this movie being made, and just from the quick clips in the promo you can see why.

Even with all the controversy later in her career, I hope many people remember her as an amazing talent, who like so many before her, was gone to soon. The movie premieres Saturday January 17 at 8/7c on Lifetime.
