"Protect ya neck!"
Showtime has acquired the upcoming Wu-Tang Clan documentary series. All four parts of Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men will air later this spring. The two first episodes will premiere at Sundance on January 28. The series features interviews with all nine living members of the iconic group in addition to never-before-seen archival footage and performances as it details Wu-Tang's rise in the hip hop game.
Nas recently shared the exciting news with his social media following. "FINALLY. The day has come. We are proud to formally announce #OfMicsandMen, Our definitive Wu-Tang Documentary," he wrote. "It’s been an intense 18 months producing this project, and it’s almost time to share it with the world"
“Wu-Tang Clan is a seminal group that deserves a seminal documentary,” said Vinnie Malhotra, EVP Nonfiction Programming at Showtime Networks. “Sacha Jenkins delivers just that, not only reminding us of their powerful history through vintage footage but also placing their impact in modern-day perspective that will be meaningful both to their diehard fans and music fans in general.”
The production is directed by Sacha Jenkins, who is known for his directorial contributions to Fresh Dressed, Burn Motherf*cker, Burn!, as well as his work as an executive producer for Eminem's Rapture via Netflix. The Wu-Tang documentary is offered by Mass Appeal in association with Endeavor Content. Additionally, Peter J. Scalettar, Peter Bittenbender and Chris Gary serve as executive producers.
