Showtime has greenlighted Suge Knight (working title), a feature-length documentary about the Death Row Records co-founder as well as the volatile and influential era in music over which he presided. The project will be directed by Training Day helmer Antoine Fuqua. Suge Knight, produced by Bradley J. Fischer and Fuqua, will be the first in a series of new documentaries produced by Showtime that will spotlight iconic and controversial figures and be done by A-list filmmakers. The documentary marks Knight’s return to the music business; through his new company Black Kapital, he will oversee the film’s soundtrack. David Prior, Laeta Kalogridis, James Vanderbilt, Lisa Remington and Edward McGurn are executive producing, with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chuck Philips serving as co-producer.
