Snoop Dogg & Daz Dillinger Working On Tha Dogg Pound TV Series
Once reported to be the sequel to the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, now a drama television series on Daz Dillinger and Kurupt‘s Tha Dogg Pound group is being shopped around to television networks.
Daz and Snoop Dogg are currently shopping around a future television series based on Tha Dogg Pound, the duo between Daz and Kurupt that was signed to Death Row Records and went on to drop multiple albums throughout their career, including their 1995 debut Dogg Food. Prior to that, the group had appeared alongside Snoop on Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic album, and on Snoop’s seminal 1993 debut Doggy Style.
“Snoop and I are always being asked to assist others with their Death Row projects because we were there from the beginning, until the demise,” Daz said in an interview with Deadline. “We saw Dre leave, Pac murdered, and we were forced to run the company when Suge Knight went back to prison. Our perspective is honest and unique. There are countless stories that the world has never heard about those early days.”
The series will be executive produced by Kenya Ware and Damien Zellous, who were also in charge of The Dogg Pound documentary DPG Eulogy that was released in 2005.
The two-minute visual gives viewers an overall taste of what to expect from the movie. From Tupac’s childhood watching his stepfather, Mutulu, give speeches while his mother Afeni Shakur looked onward, to his gradual rise as one of West Coast rap’s most important artists, the trailer offers a lot without spoiling anything.
