Golden Globe® Award winner and Academy Award® nominee Angela Bassett makes her directorial debut with the Lifetime Original Movie "Whitney," featuring Yaya DaCosta (Lee Daniels’ "The Butler") in the lead role with Arlen Escarpeta ("Final Destination 5") alongside her as Bobby Brown.
"Whitney" chronicles the headline-making relationship between the iconic singer, actress, producer and model Whitney Houston and singer and songwriter Bobby Brown from the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity to their courtship and tumultuous marriage. Throughout it all, difficulties followed the superstar couple while they dealt with the overwhelming rewards and consequences of the fame and fortune created by Houston’s meteoric rise that would soon overshadow them both.
Houston’s vocal performances in the film are sung by Grammy®-nominated and multiplatinum-selling entertainer Deborah Cox. The music featured in the film includes Houston’s hits “The Greatest Love of All,” “I’m Your Baby Tonight,” “I’m Every Woman” and “I Will Always Love You” as well as Brown’s “Every Little Step.”
Produced by The Sanitsky Company, "Whitney" is executive produced by Larry Sanitsky ("Betty & Coretta"). Shem Bitterman ("Betty & Coretta") wrote the script.

Tonight we'll be getting the final episode of season two of "Whitney" preceded by the penultimate episode of the second season. It may be something of a short season for the series, this is only episode 16 of the season, but 16 counts as a full season (more than full if you're on a cable [insert NBC ratings joke here]). We can't even begin to guess how the season will end, but we do know that it's ending. Well, okay, we could say that it'll end with the credits, but we don't presume that's the sort of insider information you're seeking out, now is it?

Everyone likes to say that they're such big fans of Dean Norris, pointing out how he plays their favorite character on "Breaking Bad." Well, we are actually fans of Dean Norris and have been fans ever since Syfy's "Tremors" TV series. Please don't give us any of that "Actually, we liked him when he did those two episodes of 'Nash Bridges'" malarkey, we're being quite honest with our "Tremors" TV series statement. Ignoring that though, Norris is going to be on "Whitney" tonight and he is going to be playing Alex's father, so there's really no need to argue -- we can all just sit back and enjoy.

Tell us the truth, did you miss Whitney Cummings and her sort of angsty, distressed, angry look at the world? Is that how you would choose to describe said look at the world or would you use other terms? Well, whether you like our description or would choose one of your one, the fact remains that Whitney Cummings is coming back tonight and there's very little you can do about it. We suggest you watch and let the comedic waves of joy wash over you. You just might find that you like it.

After an almost move to Fridays followed by a temporary hiatus, Whitney Cummings is returning for an all-new season of funny on "Whitney" starting tonight, a Wednesday night. Well, maybe it will be a half-new season or an all-new half season. Rather than getting a 20+ episode second season order, NBC has ordered 13 new episodes for this year. Now, if you watch, as we've told you before for other shows, if you're able to convince a vast number of people to watch, things could change and more episodes could be ordered. Give it a shot, see what happens.

If you think that the end of March feels just a wee bit early for a television show to have complete its season, you're absolutely right. It isn't as early as "Parenthood," which finished in February, but March is still pretty early (traditionally speaking, anyway). That, however, is exactly where we are with "Whitney," which is airing the 22nd and final episode of the first season tonight. Some may see that as a blessing, others as a curse. All we know for certain is that next week there will be a whole new show in this spot on NBC's lineup. Watch "Whitney" tonight while the watching is good.

John Cleese is a comedy legend. Truly. A member of "Monty Python," the genius behind "Fawlty Towers," that dude who starred in "A Fish Called Wanda," the guy who played 'R' in a couple of James Bond movies. Okay, well, maybe that last one isn't the best example, but he was definitely there and he was there due to his legendary status. Tonight, he'll be guest-starring on Whitney as a relationship therapist. You just know that his advice is going to be... well, at best awkward and at worst completely insane (but the funny kind of insane). Tune in and hear what he has to say.

NBC is, just like the other networks, rejiggering its schedule for midseason. As a part of that, NBC is moving "Whitney," the Whitney Cummings starring series, not the one she only produces, to Wednesday nights. We like to think that NBC is doing this so as to move the two Cummings series closer together and wish that we could expect CBS to make a similar move, pushing "Two Broke Girls" to Tuesday. But, let's forget about that for a moment, let's instead focus on "Whitney" moving to its new night starting tonight and, hopefully, coming out of the gate awfully strong.
