Betty and Coretta

Production is currently underway on Lifetime’s Betty and Coretta in Montreal under the direction of Yves Simoneau, and a new set photo has surfaced which gives us an idea of how the cast will look together.

Angela Bassett and Malik Yoba were captured wearing retro 1960s wardrobe on the vintage set.

The film centers on the lives of  Coretta Scott King (Bassett) and Dr.Betty Shabazz (Mary J. Blige)  following the assasinations of their husbands , Martin Luther King Jr. (Yoba) and Malcolm X (Wood Harris).

An airdate has yet to be announced.
