Two more films about the late Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur are headed to the small screen.
A&E Network has announced they are premiering two separate documentaries on Biggie and 2Pac next month.
A&E is reviving their popular “Biography” series to document milestone anniversaries and newly unearthed material about famous names. For both Biggie and ‘Pac, the music world is remembering these two hip-hop icons who were murdered over 20 years ago.
The story according to Variety, The Notorious Life of Biggie Smalls is a two-hour, deeply personal “Biography” documentary that will trace the life, death and legacy of the late Christopher Wallace (aka The Notorious B.I.G.) as told by those who loved him most. Directed by Mark Ford, this documentary is the definitive biography of Biggie Smalls and the first to be officially authorized by his estate.
Meanwhile, the Who Killed Tupac? documentary is a six-hour mini-series that focuses on the investigation, twenty years after 2Pac’s death. Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who represented Trayvon Martin, will conduct, for the first time ever, a thorough investigation in the case.
A&E’s 2Pac documentary will follow behind the long-awaited Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me, which arrives in theaters on June 16, which would have been ‘Pac’s 46th birthday. Biggie’s documentary will air on June 28th, while 2Pac’s docu-series will premiere the following day on June 29th.
