Unsolved - Tupac & Biggie Smalls True Crime Murder Drama Receives Pilot Order at USA Network

USA Network is jumping in the hot true crime drama genre with Unsolved. The network has given a pilot order to the scripted true crime serial that chronicles the two major police investigations into the murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur. The pilot is being directed and executive produced by Anthony Hemingway who won an Emmy for his directing work on the true crime series that sparked the current interest in the genre, FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

Unsolved, from Universal Cable Productions, is based on the experiences of former LAPD Detective Greg Kading, author of the book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations, who led multiple law-enforcement task forces investigating the murders.

Hemingway will executive produce along with Mark Taylor through their Hemingway | Taylor production company. Kading will serve as consultant on the pilot script and also serve as co-executive producer. Kyle Long (Suits) is writing the pilot and will also executive produce.
