A three-part miniseries, "The New Edition Story" follows the R&B/pop group from their humble beginnings as kids in Boston to global mega-stardom -- weathering the highs and lows of controversy, personnel changes, and the ultimate cost of fame. In 1978, 11-year-old Bobby Brown convinces friends Ricky Bell, Mike Bivins and Ralph Tresvant to perform in local talent shows. The boys are discovered soon after, sign a record deal, and produce their first No. 1 hit, "Candy Girl." Years later, tension within the group forces dramatic changes -- Bobby Brown is kicked out -- and New Edition is never the same.
