VH1 has released the first trailer for Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story, the made-for- TV biopic on the ’90s pop/hip-hop/R&B group.
The film stars Keke Palmer as Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, Drew Sidora as Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, and Lil’ Mama as the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story also stars Evan Ross (as music producer Dallas Austin), Donny Boaz ( TLC’s manager Bill Diggins), Carl Anthony Payne II (music mogul Antonio ‘L.A.’ Reid) and Rochelle Aytes (singer/songwriter/producer Perri ‘Pebbles’ Reid).
Charles Stone III (Drumline, Paid in Full, Mr. 3000) directs, from a script penned by screenwriter Kate Lanier (What’s Love Got To Do With It, Set it Off, Beauty Shop).
The two surviving members of the group, Chilli and T-Boz, are involved with the film as consultants and executive producers. The duo recently announced a musical comeback that would include their first original material since their 2002 album “3D,” which was released six months after the death of Left Eye. The release date for the new album is reportedly set for Oct. 15 from LaFace/Epic Records.
CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story airs on VH1 in October.
