A five-part documentary series chronicling the life of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur is currently in the works.
Hughes and Shakur began working together in the 1990s until a fist fight tore them apart and left Shakur in jail for 15 days.
The rapper reportedly apologized for the incident shortly before his death in 1996.
Hughes, who is behind a critically acclaimed HBO docuseries on Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, will be executive producer with Lasse Järvi and Charles D. King. Tom Pellegrini has also been tapped as a producer. No release date for the project has been announced.
This will be the “first definitive, comprehensive project on Shakur with the full cooperation of the estate,” according to Deadline.
