Singer Toni Braxton will star in the Lifetime movie adaptation of her 2014 memoir, “Un-Break My Heart”.
This “authorised life story” will chronicle the tale of the Grammy Award-winning R&B singer who has battled through lupus, financial woes, and divorce while raising a son with autism, reported Entertainment Weekly.
The network bills “Un-Break My Heart” as “the never- before-told story of the measures Braxton took to make herself and her family whole again, serving as an inspiration to people around the world.”
Braxton, 47, who stars in the WE TV’s reality series “Braxton Family Values”, is among the executive producers of the film, who also include Craig Baumgarten.
“Un-Break My Heart”, which goes into production later this year, is being written by Susan McMartin (‘Mom’) and directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall, of “Abducted: The Carlina White Story” fame.
