Something to look forward to is the news that the director of the FX’s “People vs. O.J. Simpson” Anthony Hemingway is set to direct and executive produce Unsolved, according to Deadline.

Hemingway received a directing Emmy nomination and shared the Outstanding Limited Series Emmy for People v. O.J. Simpson. The show will be scripted by Kyle Long.

The show will be produced from Universal Cable Productions and it will be based on the experiences of former LAPD Detective Greg Kading, author of the book ‘Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations’ Kading led multiple law-enforcement task forces investigating the murders.

Shakur and B.I.G aka Biggie Small were involved in a bitter feud when Shakur was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996 and Biggie was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles six months later.

Anthony Hemingway and Mark Taylor will executive produce the show with their Hemingway | Taylor production company, along with Long. Kading will be a consultant on the pilot script and also serve as co-executive producer.
