Snoop Dogg and Menace II Society’s Director Are Developing an HBO Series

20 March 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Snoop Dogg is quietly one of the busiest guys in entertainment. Just this week alone, he's appeared on Empire, delivered a keynote speech at SXSW, shared the release date for his next album, and announced that he's got a new HBO series in the works. He's set to executive produce the untitled series with Menace II Society director Allen Hughes and writer Rodney Barnes (whom he previously worked with on The Boondocks). The series, set in early 1980s L.A., will follow a "family whose seemingly idyllic life is turned upside down by the collision of their community and American politics. " During his SXSW keynote, Snoop described the series as one that'll show the Reaganomics effect on his community (Snoop, of course, grew up in Long Beach during that era). Fingers crossed he'll star in it, too. »

The 2015 Sundance Film Festival is currently underway in Park City, Utah, where some of the year's most talked-about independent films are screening for the first time. Here's our rundown of what everyone's talking about so far.   The Movie Everyone's Talking About Dope So Tell Me: The best way to describe Dope is to envision a mash-up of '90s "hood" movies -- everything from Juice and Menace II Society to House Party and Friday -- but with contemporary sensibilities, including scenes involving Bitcoin, drones, Amazon and hacking. Written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa -- and featuring a breakout performance by newcomer Shameik Moore -- the film tracks the lives of three "nerds" (Moore, Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons) navigating...
