TV one is gearing up for the premiere of The Bobby DeBarge Story. It features Roshon Fegan as the trouble lead singer of the R&B group Switch. The film also stars Tyra Ferrell, Adrian Marcel and Blue Kimble. It is directed by Russ Parr and premieres on June 29. 

ATL Homicide is back for a second season and UPFRONT talks exclusively to former APD Detectives David Quinn and Vince Velazquez. The TVOne series follows the detectives as they recount their personal experiences solving cases, alongside dramatic re-creations that place viewers in the front seat of the action. The show also follows the detectives as they search for the truth in an investigation, seeking to deliver justice on behalf of the victims of these gruesome crimes. It debuts on Monday June 17 at 9 p.m.
