Wu-Tang: An American Saga Teaser Previews the Upcoming Series

-

Hulu has revealed the teaser trailer for Wu-Tang: An American Saga, the upcoming drama series created and written by Alex Tse (SuperFly) and Wu-Tang Clan front man The RZA.

The 10-episode series is executive produced by Imagine’s Brian Grazer (Empire, Genius) and Francie Calfo (Empire, Genius), Wu-Tang Clan’s The RZA and Method Man, and Tse. Imagine Television creative executive James Seidman oversees the project for Imagine.


Based on one of the most influential and important groups in hip-hop history, the series marks the latest high-profile original series order from Hulu that aims to deliver authentic, culturally-relevant storytelling to today’s audiences. The series will explore and expand the world of the Wu-Tang clan, and marks Hulu’s second project with Brian Grazer’s Imagine following the Emmy and Grammy Award-winning documentary, The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years.

Wu-Tang: An American Saga is inspired by The Wu-Tang Manual and The Tao of Wu, and based on the true story of the hip hop group. Set in early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.

The Wu-Tang Clan has released five gold and platinum albums, selling 40 million albums worldwide. The group is often hailed as one of the most influential groups in the history of hip-hop with a unique sound and distinct image.
