Lifetime have premiered the debut trailer for the television movie Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le. The film will explore the troubled relationships between Michel’le – the first solo female artist to be signed to Ruthless RecordsSuge Knight, and Dr. Dre, depicting the highs and lows of their experiences together during the height of the N.W.A. days. Unlike Straight Outta ComptonSurviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le will delve into Dre’s controversial domestic violence issues; the trailer includes a scene where he grabs Michel’le by the throat during a tense recording studio session.

Michel’le, who has a son with Dre, has been open in the past about her omission as a character from last year’s Straight Outta Compton. ”Why would [Dre] put me in it? I was just a quiet girlfriend who got beat on and told to sit down and shut up,” she revealed in a telling interview with VladTV at the time of the film’s release. Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le will premiere on Lifetime on October 15. Watch the trailer above.
