Last month Jay-Z announced that he had inked a two-year film and TV deal with the Weinstein Company. The first project announced from the deal was a mini-series for Spike TV about kalief Browder, a New York city teen who was jailed at Rikers Island for three years without trial for theft of a backpack, and later committed suicide once he was released.
Now, Jay has announced that his second project will be for NBC, and it will be a series about Nicholas Irving. Irving was the first African-American to serve as a Special Operations Direct Action Sniper in the U.S. Military.
The series will reportedly be based around a book that Irving wrote in 2015 about his experiences.
