Jay Z To Produce Trayvon Martin Film & Documentary Series


After premiering Time: The Kalief Browder Story  on SpikeTV earlier this month. Jay Z and The Weinstein Company are ready to move on to their next project, a docuseries on Trayvon Martin who if you remember was unjustly killed by a bitch named Zimmerman, because he was allegedly having his ass whopped by a 17-year old unharmed kid. I'm just going to say this. If you're a grown ass man and you get beat by a kid, you should do like Katt Williams -- take your L like a man and move on. But instead Zimmerman had to result to gun violence in the name of self defense.

Zimmerman who was a member of his neighborhood commuinty watch in Florida was aquited on a second-degree murder.

According to Variety, the Documentary will be broken into a six part series based on two books -- Lisa Bloom's "Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story Of The Trayvon Martin Injustice And Why We Continue To Repeat It," and Sybrina Fulton & Tracy Martin's "Rest In Power: The Endearing Life Of Trayvon Martin." The latter "Rest In Power" was written by Martin's parents. It takes a more personal look into Trayvon's childhood and the aftermath of his death.

Variety also reports Jay Z and The Weinstein Company won the rights of both books after a heated bidding war. They had to fend off competition from other studios including Fox Searchlight and Universal.

The 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin sparked a national debate about racial profiling in America and the inequities of the criminal Justice system, which started the "Black Lives Matter" movement.

The doc-series produced by Jay Z is a product of the hip-hop mogul's deal with The Weinstein Company, which he signed back in September of last year. The indie company will also develop a narrative feature film.

Jay is also producing a miniseries for HBO based on the life of Emmett Till.

Jason Derulo in a quick chat with TMZ gave Jay Z props and says the movie will bring a whole different angle to the case.
