Showtime Sets Suge Dark night Documentary

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images for LMVHSuge Dark night Just days after Showtime bowed its Paul McCartney documentary, the premium cable network is diving into another music-designed effort with Suge Dark night. Training Day's Antoine Fuqua will direct and convey the tentatively entitled project in line with the existence and exploits from the Dying Row Records co-founder. Black Swan's Bradley J. Fischer will produce alongside Fuqua. The Dark night doc may be the first in a number of new documentaries created by Showtime which will spotlight legendary and questionable figures to become overseen by filmmakers. "Suge Knight's status and rise to energy within the music business is just about the stuff of legend, and that he remains among the entertainment industry's most provocative and long lasting misconceptions," Fischer stated inside a statement announcing this news Tuesday. "But while his title brings about an instantaneous and effective reaction from people all over the world, very couple of can legitimately claim that they can be aware of guy. Antoine Fuqua and that i are thrilled to become joining up with Showtime to inform this amazing story and take audiences behind a curtain that many happen to be afraid to even approach." Dark night will take part in the doc and can discuss his rise to fame, why it fell apart and what's next. The first kind Boss of Dying Row Records is credited with starting the careers of Snoop Dogg and P Diddy, amongst others. David Prior, Laeta Kalogridis, James Vanderbilt, Lisa Remington and Edward McGurn will executive produce, with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chuck Philips co-creating. Your time and effort also doubles as Knight's go back to the background music business: producer set to supervise the film's soundtrack, that will feature original tracks from new and established entertainers, through his new company Black Kapital.
