Tupac Project Picked Up for FX's First-Ever Documentary Slate

Earlier this year, FX's Chairman John Landgraf revealed that FX would be moving into the unscripted space. Now, FX's first-ever documentary slate has been announced, which includes five shows and a feature doc, including the previously announced Allen Hughes-directed Tupac docuseries.

Entitled Outlaw: The Saga of Afeni and Tupac Shakur, the five-part docuseries will explore mother-son duo Afeni and Tupac Shakur who could not be silenced. Told through the eyes of the people who knew them best, the project will take a look at their unified message of freedom, equality, persecution, and justice.

In addition to the Tupac project, the documentary slate includes a Blumhouse TV-produced six-part docuseries based on Errol Morris' novel A Wilderness of Error; Pride, a six-part docuseries chronicling the fight for LGBTQ civil rights in America; Hip Hop Untold, an exploration of power brokers in the music industry; a four-part docuseries based on the New York Times best-selling book The Most Dangerous Animal of All; and a feature doc entitled Women in Comedy.

“FX has long sought to give artists a platform to showcase their individual, uncompromising vision and its new docuseries and features are an opportunity to extend that ambition in our collaboration with non-fiction talent,” said FX original programming president Nick Grad. "Under the guidance of FX’s Jonathan Frank and J.J. Klein, we are now honored to partner with these new teams to create docuseries and features that will join FX’s legacy of fearless and groundbreaking programming.”

Premiere dates for FX's new documentary slate will be announced later.
