A&E Network will be premiering a two-hour documentary special, Biography: TLC, next year.
According to the press release, this special will document the group’s powerful, emotional journey and their survival against all odds. Group members T-Boz and Chilli tell their story for the first time in a feature documentary.
“The ‘Biography’ banner has always focused on telling the stories of remarkable people who have had a major impact on our collective culture,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, EVP and Head of Programming, A&E Network. “As a revolutionary group that broke boundaries and influenced an entire generation, TLC falls directly into that category and we are honored to tell their incredible story as it has never been told before.”
“As someone who has long been in awe of TLC and their musical and cultural impact, I am thrilled to be a part of bringing the story of their music, their journey, and their continuing reverence to the screen,” said Emmy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams. “I am grateful for the opportunity to work with A&E, as well as filmmaker Matthew Kay, to bring this film to life. We hope this film illuminates a side of this incredible group and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas that longtime fans and viewers alike have not seen before.”
TLC landed nine top-ten hits and four number-one singles across their three-decades-long career, but their journey was marred by “internal fallouts, external attacks, bankruptcy and illness.”
Tragedy hit when Left Eye died passed away in 2002, and after a lengthy hiatus, the group eventually returned to the spotlight.
