A&E To Premiere 3-Hour Biggie Documentary, 6-Part Tupac Limited Series This Summer

Johnny Depp To Investigate The Murders Of Biggie & Tupac In New Film 'Labyrinth'

A&E is prepping the release of a documentary on the Notorious B.I.G., as well as a limited series on Tupac Shakur.

Described as the definitive documentary on Biggie, Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G. will be a three-hour special that not only includes never before seen archival and footage and audio recordings, but Biggie narrating. The documentary will also have new interviews by those closest to the late rapper including widow Faith Evans, mother Voletta Wallace, and friend Lil Cease, as well as Puff Daddy, Jay Z, and Nas.

Accompanying the Biggie documentary will be a six-part limited series on 2Pac titled Who Killed Tupac? The series will focus on famed civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump as he embarks on an investigation 20 years after the death of the iconic rapper.

"The late Christopher Wallace and Tupac Shakur continue to impact the world two decades after their tragic, unsolved murders and there is still a public longing to connect with these figures and to celebrate their legacies," Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, A&E Network, said in a statement. "We pride ourselves in delivering projects under the 'Biography' banner that unearth a side of the story that the public has never seen before. In the case of Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G., the foundation of this biography is exclusive archival footage and audio recordings of Biggie himself, packaged in a way that allows him to tell his own life story as if its present day and we are truly excited to be able to bring that kind of intimacy and connection to his fans."

The first two hours of Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G. will debut on Wednesday, June 28, with the final hour being shown on Thursday, June 29. Following that will be the debut of the first part of Who Killed Tupac?
