New Unsolved Crime Show About Tupac and Biggie

img_3567There have been numerous documentaries focusing on the deaths of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G., but the latest project about the slain rappers is different from the rest.

According to reports, USA Network announced Unsolved, a new series about the police investigations behind the murders of Pac and Biggie. The show is penned by Suits writer Kyle Long and directed by Anthony Hemingway, the director and co-executive-producer of the Emmy Award-winning The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Greg Kading, former LAPD Detective and author of Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations, will be consulting on the script.

Decades after the untimely deaths of the hip-hop stars, their legacy continues to thrive. Along with the upcoming series, a Pac biopic, called All Eyez on Me, is set to hit theaters next year and another series about Biggie, called Think B.I.G., is being developed by TBS.

USA Network has announced that it has picked up the pilot for a new series about the police investigations behind the murders of 2Pac and the Notorious B.I.G. The show is called “Unsolved,” and it’s written by Kyle Long (“Suits”) and directed by Anthony Hemingway–director and co-executive-producer of the Emmy Award-winning “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” Former LAPD Detective Greg Kading is consulting on the script; he is the author of Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations.

There’s been even more interest lately in 2Pac and Biggie’s lives and deaths. A Pac biopic, called All Eyez on Me, is currently in the works. (Jamal Woolard will reprise his Biggie role from Notorious in the movie.) There is also another series about Biggie that TBS is developing. It’s called “Think B.I.G.,” and each episode “will be loosely based on the lyrics of Notorious B.I.G.” And yet another project–a film called Labyrinth–will tell the story of Detective Russell Poole, the investigator who worked on Biggie’s murder case. Johnny Depp will play Poole.
