With the premiere of Lifetime’s “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B” airing soon on November 15, the network has revved up promo to deliver to the masses the highly-anticipated film about the late R&B star.
In a short clip, Lifetime drops the first TV advertisement for the film starring Alexandra Shipp (pictured above) as Aaliyah. The clip also gives us more detail about the time it will air: 8/7c.
According to Wendy Williams, (whose production company logged on for the film), the movie will focus on her record deal at the age of 12, the controversial relationship with R. Kelly, how she took a risk against her label’s orders to work with then-up-and-coming producers Timbaland and Missy Elliot, and more.
Despite the Haughton family's wishes to halt the production, the network seem gung ho about pushing this out…and with the quickness.
