READ  Reflection on the fiction

This will not be the first time the director addresses to the genesis of a group of music for television: Chris Robinson has made a miniseries of three episodes entitled The New Edition Story, which traced the ascent of the group of the u.s. R&B New Edition, in 2017, for the specialty channel, Black Entertainment Television.

The other members of the group, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa, GZA and Ol’ Dirty Bastard Estate will act as consultants on the series.

Wu-Tang: an American Saga will return to the formation of the group in the 1990s in New York, when the traffic of cocaine and crack use was at its peak.

The story will follow the lives of different members of the group, but especially the one of Bobby Diggs, aka RZA, who has managed to gather a dozen young black men and lead them to the world of music rather than the crime.

A history of fairy-tale improbable, which gave birth to one of the most iconic bands of the rap game.
