Jay Z Executive Producing Docu Series On Race In America

Rapper

Jay Z is expanding his TV resume by executive producing a series about racial issues in America.

His six-episode series, titled Race, will offer “a stark and provocative look into systemic injustices in

America“, using documentary, animation and archival footage to outline issues surrounding financial inequality, the criminal justice system, social media, activism, and family.

The series will also feature present day stories from a variety of immigrants and first generation

Americans, according to Variety.com.

Race will air in 171 countries in 45 languages.

The project is part of

Jay Z’s two-year film and TV deal with

The Weinstein Company, which he signed last year (16). He hs already co-produced TIME: The Kalief Browder Story, a TV docu-series about a young black man who committed suicide after serving three years at the notorious

Riker’s Island prison in

New York, and he is also developing a documentary about slain

African-American Trayvon Martin, who lost his life in 2012. Vigilante

George Zimmerman mistook the teenager for a burglar and shot him during a scuffle in

Florida.
