Jay Z and Nat Geo Will Partner On Six-Part Docuseries On Systemic Injustices
It looks like Jay Z is taking this docuseries thing seriously.
At the National Geographic Channel’s upfronts on Tuesday, they announced their partnership with the Weinstein Company and the hip-hop mogul for a six-part docuseries called, Race, that they say will provide
“a stark and provocative look into systemic injustices in America.”
Race will be Jay Z’s third documentary project this year. His first was TIME: The Kalief Browder Story, which premiered March 1 on Spike TV to rave reviews. It was also recently announced his Trayvon Martin documentary, Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, was picked up by Paramount Network and would air in 2018.
The multi-hyphenate businessman is carving a name for himself in the television landscape and networks seem to be very interested. All three projects have a similar theme of dissecting race and injustice in America, which are hot-button issues given the current political climate.
As for fans who are waiting for another Jay Z album, these documentaries will tie you over.
