USA Network confirmed a pilot pick up of Unsolved, a true crime serial from Emmy winner Anthony Hemingway (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story). The scripted serial will examine the murder investigations of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, with former LAPD Detective Greg Kading serving as the pilot’s consultant and as a co-executive producer. Hemingway will direct and executive produce along with Mark Taylor and Kyle Long. Long’s writing the pilot.

Kading led the law enforcement task force investigating Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls’ murders. Kading chronicled the investigation in his book, Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations.

The network has not revealed when they plan on premiering Unsolved or any details on casting. In addition to Unsolved, USA Network has given pilot orders to The Sinner starring Jessica Biel, Damnation, and The Tap.
