Here’s your first real look at VH1‘s biopic of female R&B group TLC, starring Keke Palmer as Chilli, Lil Mama as Left Eye, and Drew Sidora as T-Boz. The 2-minute CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story teaser is light on behind the scenes story but highlights some painstaking reenactments of the group’s most totally ’90s moments and music videos, including their iconic “Waterfalls” video. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, the two surviving members of TLC who also consulted on and exec produced the pic, announced they’ve re-signed with LA Reid and Epic Records for the October 15 release of a new album of greatest hits and new songs, including the Ne-Yo penned “Meant To Be” which appears in the film. The TLC blitz continues as Lil Mama joins T-Boz and Chilli at this week’s Mixtape Festival performing in place of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a 2002 crash. Charles Stone III (Drumline) is directing from a script by Kate Lanier (What’s Love Got To Do With It). CrazySexyCool will premiere on VH1 on October 21:
