 Yaya DaCosta Alafia '00 has been cast as Whitney Houston in an upcoming Lifetime biopic about the singer.

Angela Bassett will make her directorial debut with the Lifetime Original Movie, tentatively titled Whitney Houston, which will chronicle the headline-making relationship between the iconic singer, actress, producer and model, and singer, songwriter Bobby Brown -- from the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity, to their courtship and tumultuous marriage.

Bassett will direct from a script penned by Shem Bitterman (Betty & Coretta -- the Lifetime Original Movie that Bassett starred in last year). Larry Sanitsky (who produced Betty & Coretta) will do the same for Whitney Houston.
