Dozens of Atlantans were among the first to see parts of the hotly-anticipated new film about R&B singer Bobby Brown.

The BET Network hosted its "Bobby-Q" Atlanta premiere of the "The Bobby Brown Story" Saturday at the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center.

The 49-year-old entertainer and his family attended the screening, along with several of the movie's cast members.  The four-hour miniseries, which airs this week, chronicles Brown's ousting from the hit group New Edition and his often-embattled marriage to the late pop icon Whitney Houston, according to BET.

Brown spoke with FOX 5's Marissa Mitchell before screening the first episode of the biopic he co-produced. He said he's looking forward to sharing his truth.

"There are some things that people don't understand about me. They don't know what I went through in my life in  order to become the man that I am becoming. And I am not finished. God is not finished with me," Brown told Mitchell.

"The Bobby Brown Story" was produced in Atlanta.
