Monday night’s premiere of TLC’s highly anticipated VH1 biopic,CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, netted this year’s highest rated cable original film with approximately 4.5 million viewers tuning in, according to a press release. The prime time premiere also made VH1 history by becoming the network’s most watched original film ever.
Starring Keke Palmer (as Chilli), Lil Mama (as Left Eye), and Drew Sidora (T-Boz), the Charles Stone III-directed film focused on the group’s humble beginnings in Atlanta and their meteoric rise to pop culture fame. Last week T-Boz and Chilli made a special appearance on HuffPost Live, where they opened up on preparing the girls for their respective roles in the film.
“We spent so much time with the girls. We hung around them. They spent the night, you name it,” Chilli disclosed. “We did everything, because we wanted to really, almost overly prepare them for their role so that they could really deliver and they really did.” Catch a special re-airing of “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” Sunday, October 27th at 8pm on VH1.
