Production on the forthcoming Whitney Houston based Lifetime movie, "Whitney," is in full swing.

Following the first look at Yaya DaCosta as Houston last week, Lifetime has released a photo of DaCosta with actor Arlen Escarpeta, who will portray Bobby Brown.

Pictured, Escarpeta has a resume that includes roles on series including "The Shield," "Judging Amy," "ER," "Cold Case" and "Boomtown." He also starred alongside Matthew McConaughey in "We Are Marshall."

As previously reported, "Whitney" is said to focus on Houston's life in the early to mid 90s.

Angela Bassett is directing.
