The new series is due this winter

The true-crime anthology series is quickly becoming a staple on television. Following the success of shows like The People Vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, plenty of networks are eager to hop on board with their own dramatizations of famous crimes. Plus… Given the unending interest around the murders of Tupac and Biggie — and the rise of the hip-hop biopic — it was only a matter of time before some network decided to let a few actors put on 90s period costumes and act out some of the most famous cold cases in history.

The trailer for Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious B.I.G has just dropped via USA, and it looks like the network is pulling out all the stops on their latest project. The project — which execs hope will be the launching point for an Unsolved anthology series — decides not to tread on the well-worn path leading up to the rappers’ murders and focuses instead on the investigation immediately following their deaths.

Josh Duhamel is playing the lead role of Detective Greg Kading. Jimmy Simpson plays Detective Russell Poole.

According to Deadline, the screenplay pulls heavily from Kading’s book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of the Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations.
