Faith Evans on Her Notorious B.I.G. Documentary, and How New TV Projects May Force the Truth About His Murder

4 September 2017 2:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Twenty years after the death of the Notorious B.I.G., his murder — as well as the death of Tupac Shakur — still hasn’t been solved. But his widow, Faith Evans, believes a spate of new TV projects could force the Los Angeles Police Department to reveal the truth.

Several projects timed to the anniversary, including A&E’s new documentary “Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G.,” Fox’s investigation special “Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?” and USA Network’s scripted drama “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.,” dive into the mystery. (The Johnny Depp feature “Labyrinth,” which also investigates the murders, is on tap for 2018.) Most of the projects have a clear point of view on who was responsible, yet there’s still no consensus.

Evans said she wasn’t familiar with the USA project, which is being produced without the involvement of the Notorious B.I.G. estate. »

Nick Broomfield: 'I was a rebel, causing as much trouble as possible'

1 September 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The inner life of pop diva Whitney Houston, the murder of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious Big, America’s first female serial killer … film-maker Nick Broomfield talks closeups, close calls and what drives him to find the truth

Nick Broomfield’s original film about Aileen Wuornos, always described as America’s first female serial killer, was released in 1992. In great detail and with remarkable access he covers successive trials, across different states, in which she was handed the death penalty several times over for the shooting of six men on various highways.

What is striking about the first film, The Selling of a Serial Killer, is how isolated and undefended Wuornos was. With her girlfriend giving evidence against her, Wuornos’s only emotional support came from one coquettish Christian woman who had decided to adopt her during the trial. Her legal counsel was Dr Legal, a solipsistic stoner she had seen on a TV advert, »

Tupac Shakur was the type of guy that seemed to have two different personalities. On one hand he was a talented young rapper whose career was heading upwards at the time of his death.

Raised in Harlem by a mother that belonged to the Black Panthers Tupac was raised into a world where violence was fairly regular. He took that however and made it a part
