THE BOBBY DEBARGE STORY explores the tumultuous life of the former lead singer of the 70’s R&B/Funk Band Switch, also the eldest sibling of the world-famous pop group DeBarge. Despite his success in music, the iconic falsetto found his life in peril as he struggled with fame and fortune while coping with the memories of his dysfunctional childhood.
In his first role as a leading man, Roshon Fegan brilliantly transforms into the falsetto master, Bobby DeBarge, and takes audiences inside the tumultuous life of the former lead singer of Switch. Fegan is joined by other film stars including Tyra Ferrell as Etterlene DeBarge, Blue Kimble as Tommy DeBarge and Adrian Marcel as James DeBarge. Big Boi (Outkast) portrays legendary music mogul Berry Gordy, while Lloyd appears as Switch member Gregory Williams. Debuting during Black Music Month, THE BOBBY DEBARGE STORY, will air on Saturday, June 29 at 8 P.M. ET/7C, followed by an encore presentation at 10 P.M. ET/9C.
