If there’s one thing we’re loving on TV right now, it’s true crime, and USA will make its own play at the genre with Unsolved. According to Variety, the scripted series will follow the murder investigations of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., and the pilot will be directed by Anthony Hemingway, who brings his experience working on the current gold standard of true-crime programming, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, along with him. Unsolved will be based on the book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations, by Greg Kading, a former LAPD detective who led multiple investigations into both murders, and who will be onboard with the series as an executive producer. Between this and the next season of American Crime Story, which will focus on the murder of Gianni Versace, the 1990s may be the new 1980s on TV.
