“Superfly” writer Alex Tse, Imagine Television’s Brian Grazer (“Empire,” “Genius”) and Francie Calfo (“Empire,” “Genius”), and Wu-Tang Clan members RZA and Method Man will be the executive producers for “Wu-Tang: An American Saga.”
Tse and RZA co-created the series. No release date has been announced.
“I’m delighted to be partnering with Hulu and Imagine to explore the vast story of the Wuniverse,” RZA said. “Wu-Tang through our music has always strove to inspire as we entertain. This opportunity to continue the Wu-Saga in a 10-episode series will exponentially increase our inspirational style of entertainment. In the immortal words of ODB, ‘Wu-Tang is for the Children.’ “
Method Man said he was “thrilled with this collaboration.”
“This is a major win for hip-hop,” he said.
