Earlier this year, New Edition were featured in a three-part miniseries on the network, the first scripted music program for BET. The self-titled biopic revealed how five childhood friends from the projects of Roxbury, Massachusetts were forever changed after winning a local talent show.

The 2017 BET Awards will be telecast live and will feature performances by Bruno Mars, Future, Migos, Trey Songz and Tamar Braxton. Leslie Jones will host.
