Lifetime has become infamous for doing these tragically hilarious movies that have become fodder for many, many social media jokes. From their awful take on Aaliyah‘s life and times to their terrible
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown Whitty Huton Wuld Toor biopic, everything is unintentionally yet predictably funny.
On October 15th the soon-to-be funnies will continue with Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me, a biopic on the Death Row life and times of singer Michel’le. Michel’le, known for her hit singles “No More Lies” and “Something In My Heart,” was in relationships with both Suge Knight and Dr. Dre (she has children with both men, and was briefly married to Suge in 1999).
She also lived a life of turmoil, which included alleged assaults and physical abuse from Dre. In an effort-slash-direct response to the massively successful 2015 film Straight Outta Compton, her film will attempt to showcase such turmoil. Drama-filled, yes, but knowing Lifetime #BlackTwitter will have a field day with it.
Watch the trailer for it below.
