‘Unsolved’ Star on Working with Tupac and ‘Being Transparent’ About the Investigation Into His Murder https://t.co/totr1pDVzl— Variety (@Variety) January 9, 2018
Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. will span three timelines: 1993 when the two rappers were friends; 1997 as a detective investigates Biggie's death; and 2006 when the case is reopened by a new task force. Premiering Feb 27, it will star Wavyy Jonez, Marcc Rose, Jimmi Simpson, Josh Duhamel, Bokeem Woodbine, Letoya Luckett and others.
Woodbine, who got to work with Tupac, says this about the show: “The story of the assassinations of Tupac and Christopher Wallace are exemplary of something I’ve always said, which is that the truth is stranger than fiction. Their real life stories were allegorical and we can draw all types of wisdom from happened to these men in real life. We’re giving the audience a perspective of the investigation and the minutia of detail. There are all of these singular details that build up this case of these monolithic figures in music culture and black culture and American culture. We get an opportunity to examine what happened to them from an almost forensic perspective.”
And apparently, at the end of its 10 episodes, the show will point in certain directions.
“There’s very little ambiguity after the culmination of all 10 episodes. We’re being transparent out of respect to those that have passed and those that live with the pain of those that have passed. Sometimes transparency draws conclusions.”
