A few months ago, 50 Cent announced that it was planning to televise the infamous 1993 murder of Snoop Dogg. Now it seems like the show is making its way there.
50 announced yesterday that the upcoming series Murder Was The Case will go into pre-production after being given the go-ahead from the Starz network.
“’There was murder’ is an incredible story. Snoop had the biggest album in the country and was fighting for his freedom in the courtroom, ”50 said in an Instagram post. “The only place you can go for this incredible ride is G-Unit Film & Television. I’m excited to be working with Snoop to get it on TV. “
He added, “This is going to be bigger than OJ […] I mean @snoopdogg taller than Tropicana. I think that will break all attendance records at STARZ. “
Fif will serve as executive producer on the series, as will Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante Broadus, Sara Ramaker of Snoopadelic Films, and Anthony Wilson of Lionsgate Television.
Snoop also shared his excitement about the upcoming series.
“I’m happy to finally be able to tell the story of ‘Murder was the Case’,” said Snoop. “This was a pivotal moment in my life and career and I deliberately waited until I found the right partner to bring this to the big screen. You will now witness the strength of street knowledge. “
