From the director of the People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story comes Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious B.I.G. Now this is not your ordinary docu-series that we all have seen before, it is so much more. During a private screening, I had the chance to see the first episode in the 10-part series and it gets straight to the point quick. The first episode gives you everything that all the other documentaries gave you in an hour. It leaves you on the edge of your seat and wondering what can be next.
Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. is a scripted true crime serial that chronicles the two major police investigations by LAPD Detective Greg Kading into the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
Emmy Winner Anthony Hemingway directed the pilot episode and will executive produce the series, along with Mark Taylor. Kyle Long (Suits) wrote the pilot episode and will also executive produce. Detective Greg Kading will also serve as co-executive producer.
