The Wu-Tang Clan is one of the most legendary groups of all time. With countless albums sold and major influence throughout the culture, it’s only right for Wu’s story to be told in-depth. Now, Hulu has ordered a drama series based on the story of the Wu-Tang Clan co-created by RZA and Alex Tse.
Hulu has issued a 10-episode series for Wu-Tang Clan: An American Saga. The TV show touches on the formation of the Wu-Tang Clan in the early 90’s during the crack era. The series will follow RZA’s direction in forming the group, touching on them making music while being active in the streets. The show is set to be executive produced by RZA, Method Man, and a couple other people; it is inspired by two of RZA’s books, The Wu-Tang Manual and Tao Of Wu. Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa, GZA and ODB’s estate will be consulting producers of the show.
“I’m delighted to be partnering with Hulu and Imagine to explore the vast story of the Wuniverse. Wu-Tang, through our music, has always strove to inspire as we entertain. This opportunity to continue the Wu saga in a 10-episode series will exponentially increase our inspirational style of entertainment. In the immortal words of ODB, ‘Wu-Tang is for the Children,'” said RZA.
Method Man added, “Imagine: Hulu and Wu-Tang — I’m thrilled with this collaboration. This is a major win for hip-hop.”
Salute to Wu-Tang for being part of this historic moment in hip hop.
