Jay Z’s New Television Show Will Focus on the Army’s First African-American Sniper
Jay Z’s two-year deal with the Weinstein Company will include a new NBC project focused around Nicholas “The Reaper” Irving, the first black sniper to serve in the U.S. Army. Page Six reports that the drama will be a six-part miniseries starring Sterling K. Brown, who won an Emmy for his performance as Christopher Darden in The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Brown currently appears in This Is Us, another NBC series.
The report is the latest in a series of wins for Hov. Last week, Jay Z announced that he’ll be producing the Richard Pryor biopic and a Kalief Browder documentary. He also won the “Made in America” copyright infringement lawsuit yesterday.
