Showtime has announced planes to produce a documentary based on the life of Suge Knight.
The film “will delve deep into the life and storied exploits of the Death Row Records co-founder as well as the volatile and highly influential era in music that he presided over."
Showtime promises Knight will “personally reveal exactly how it all happened, why it all fell apart, and what the next chapter holds for one of America’s most iconic and mythologized figures.”
"Suge Knight’s reputation and rise to power in the music business has become the stuff of legend,” said producer Bradley J. Fischer told CNN. “Antoine Fuqua and I are thrilled to be partnering with Showtime to tell this remarkable story and take audiences behind a curtain that most have been terrified to even approach.”
Knight will also be producing the soundtrack through his new company, Black Kapital.
