*Lifetime has unveiled the first official photo of Lex Scott Davis in character as Toni Braxton for the upcoming Lifetime biopic “Unbreak My Heart.”
The movie, which has Braxton’s blessing (she serves as executive producer and also appears in the film) is scheduled to premiere on Saturday, Jan. 23 at 8 p.m., followed by an hourlong special, “Beyond the Headlines: Toni Braxton,” featuring interviews with Braxton, her family and others at 10 p.m.
Based on Braxton’s 2014 memoir, “Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart” chronicles her divorce, financial difficulties and struggles with her son’s autism.
Davis, meanwhile, is pretty new to Hollywood. She previously played a waitress in an episode of TV Land’s “The Exes,” and was a “featured extra” in “Straight Outta Compton.”
Toni’s longtime collaborator Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds also serves as a producer. Vondie Curtis Hall directed from a script by Susan McMartin.
