The show is a true crime serial that will focus on the two major police investigations launched after the murders of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G., two of the biggest rap superstars to ever emerge from the genre.


Rose and Jonez join previously announced cast members Josh Duhamel as Los Angeles Detective Greg Kading, Jimmi Simpson as Detective Russell Poole and Bokeem Woodbine as Officer Daryn Dupree in Unsolved: The Murders of Biggie and Tupac. You might remember Rose's brief portrayal of 2Pac in 2015's N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Jonez was discovered by way of a national casting call and will be making his acting debut. It remains to be seen how much screen time both actors will actually get in this TV series, seeing as it revolves around the murder of the two rappers rather than the lives they lived up to that point. He is repped by ICM Partners. Auditioning among hundreds of other hopefuls, Jonez's tape caught the attention of Anthony Hemingway, who will serve as executive producer and director on the pilot. In 2011, Kading authored Murder Rap: The Untold Story of the Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations. His murder also remains a mystery. Jonez is repped by Yasmine Pearl at First Access Entertainment. He also consulted on the script and co-executive produce the pilot. Hemingway will exec produce along with Mark Taylor and Kyle Long, who wrote the pilot.
