Next week, VH1 will premiere the highly-anticipated TLC biopic “CrazySexyCool” and from the looks of the newest supertrailer, it’s a must-see, especially, for TLC fans. The movie goes through the triumphs and tragedies of the chart-topping girl group, including their rise to fame, infamous headlines and loss of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. In the trailer alone, there were no stones left unturned as we see T-Boz become ill with sickle cell anemia, Chilli get pregnant by producer Dallas Austin (Evan Ross), and Left Eye smack up her man and a chick he’s caught cheating with, before setting his mansion on fire. The group also goes broke and bankrupt at the peak of their careers. There’s a lot to take in in under two minutes.
According to the group’s long-time manager and executive producer Bill Diggins:
[T-Boz and Chilli] told [their story] accurately and they told it in a way that, at some points, wasn’t so flattering to them. They wanted the truth to be told, so I would say that you’re not going to get a more accurate depiction of these girls’ lives from anybody. This is the good, the bad and the ugly.
Watch the action-packed trailer to the made-for-TV biopic below:
