‘The Bobby Brown Story’

BET’s miniseries will cover musician Bobby Brown’s life, including his off-stage antics and his marriage to and divorce from Whitney Houston. 

What are they looking for? 

Two sets of African-American babies are needed, with one set portraying a newborn baby and the other portraying a one-year-old. Twins are a plus, but you can also submit your singletons. 

The babies should have a brown complexion, and the ones portraying the newborn can be male or female. Babies portraying the one-year-old should be female.

When are they filming?

Filming will be on March 9 in Atlanta for the newborn role and on March 13 for the one-year-old.

How much does it pay?

Minors are paid $100 for 10 hours, and because of the age of the babies, they’ll receive this rate for two hours on set.

How do I submit?

Send an e-mail to with the subject line “NEWBORN” or “1 YEAR OLD.” Include your name and number and the baby’s age, height and two photos (one headshot and one full body).
