Hot on the heels of acclaimed documentary Of Mics And Men comes a fictionalised, ten episode reimagining of the origins of the Wu Tang Clan created by Alex Tse and RZA. Here’s the official synopsis of Wu Tang: An American Saga:
Wu-Tang: An American Saga is inspired by “The Wu-Tang Manual” and “Tao of Wu,” and based on the true story of the Wu-Tang Clan. Set in early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.
The series premieres in August.
