The Weinstein Company and Jay Z are working on two major projects with Jay about the murder of Trayvon Martin, Variety reports. Jay Z will produce a six-part docu-series about Martin’s shooting, with a feature film to follow.
The projects come as the company has secured the rights to two books written about the incident Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It by NBC reporter Lisa Bloom and Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, a memoir co-written by Martin’s parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. No further details have been given about the projects.
Last September, Jay signed a two-year contract with the Weinsteins to collaborate on television and film projects together.
