‘Peo­ple v. O.J.’ di­rec­tor to helm Big­gie Tu­pac drama pi­lot

Kuwait Times - - WEEKENDER -

The di­rec­tor be­hind FX’s ac­claimed “Peo­ple vs. O.J. Simp­son” minis­eries is set to tackle an­other true crime drama, this one based on the un­solved deaths of rap­pers Tu­pac Shakur and The No­to­ri­ous B.I.G., also known as Big­gie Smalls.

The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter says USA Net­work has or­dered a pi­lot for “Un­solved,” which will be di­rected by An­thony Hem­ing­way. The Re­porter says the story will re­volve around the ex­pe­ri­ences of for­mer Los An­ge­les po­lice de­tec­tive Greg Kad­ing, who is con­sult­ing on the show. Kad­ing has in­ves­ti­gated the killings and wrote a book about the crimes.

Shakur and B.I.G., whose real name was Christo­pher Wal­lace, were in­volved in a bit­ter feud when Shakur was gunned down in Las Ve­gas in 1996. Wal­lace was killed in a drive-by shoot­ing in Los An­ge­les six months later.
