USA Network has released the trailer for their upcoming show Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. You can watch it above.
The fictionalized true-crime series will focus on the investigations of the murders of both rappers. Tupac was killed on September 13, 1996 at the age of 25 while Biggie was killed on March 9, 1997 at the age of 24.
Anthony Hemingway, the Emmy award winner who worked on The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, will direct.
Tupac Shakur will be played by Marcc Rose and the Notorious B.I.G. will be played by Wavyy Jonez. Josh Duhamel will star as Detective Greg Kading, Jimmi Simpson as Detective Russell Poole, and Bokeem Woodbine as Officer Daryn Dupree.
Former LAPD Detective Greg Kading, who investigated the murders in real life, will serve as co-executive producer. Kyle Long of Suits is tasked with writing the pilot and will also executive produce.
USA has written that the “scripted true crime series, from Universal Cable Productions, chronicles the two major police investigations into the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur (2Pac) and The Notorious B.I.G. (born Christopher Wallace and also known as Biggie Smalls) during the infamous East Coast–West Coast hip hop rivalry of the 1990s.”
In other news about the still-unsolved cases, last year word came out that Johnny Depp will star in a film based on Randall Sullivan’s book Labyrinth, about the investigations into the murders of the rap icons. Depp is set to play late LAPD detective Russell Poole.
Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. will be premiering on USA Network this winter.
