A DOCUSERIES ABOUT TUPAC SHAKUR AND HIS MOTHER AFENI IS COMING TO FX!

FX network is set to premiere a docuseries following Tupac Shakur and his mother Afeni, an author, activist, and former member of the Black Panther Party. The five-episode Outlaw: The Saga of Afeni and Tupac Shakur will be directed by Emmy-nominated Allen Hughes. As the network’s press release, “Told through the eyes of the people who knew them best, Outlaw is an intimate wide-angle portrait of the most inspiring and dangerous mother-son duo in American history, whose unified message of freedom, equality, persecution and justice are more relevant today than ever.” The series will also convey their unified message of freedom, equality, persecution, and justice. In a 2017 interview with Allen Hughes on XXL, Hughes said he was amazed at how patient Dre and their friends were eager to talk to him during the filming process. "I was surprised because I didn’t know if we get everyone, if they will sit down, how long they’ll sit down," he explained. "Every single one of those individuals — who just happen to be rock stars and the business people who are incredible too — never have I sat down and no one was in a rush." “On one level, Tupac was one of the sweetest people I ever met," Hughes said. “The Tupac Estate was — and I know them, they’re all old friends — but there was some stuff with him at the gun range that they were precious about,” he said. “My original cut is not the way it [eventually aired]. The family and the estate were really sensitive about taking things out of context when it came to weapons in his hands, you know? He was at a shooting range and it was pretty explosive in the original cut, and they were very, very, very adamant that we not do it that way.” The premiere date will be announced in the coming months. FX also announced the series “Hip Hop Untold,” a six-part series examining as-yet-unnamed power brokers “who operate from the shadows of hip hop.”
