The series is set to follow the origins of the Wu-Tang Clan, taking place at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic in New York City. The group was a vision of RZA, who strived to unite a dozen young, black men that were torn between music and crime but eventually rose to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.
Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo, and Method Man will serve as executive producers while Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa, GZA, and the Estate of Ol’ Dirty Bastard serve as consulting producers.
