50 Cent confirmed that A Moment In Time: Murder Was the Case — his series focusing on Snoop Dogg‘s 1993 murder trial — will not be happening at STARZ.
The executive producer confirmed the news in a now-deleted tweet and gave an unclear of explanation of why the deal with STARZ fell through. “@SnoopDogg Murder was the case is no longer in production at STARZ,” Fif wrote. “I give them the alley-oop, they drop the damn ball. Anyway I hope snoop tell his story.”
Murder Was the Case was initially set to follow Snoop Dogg’s 1993 trial for the first-degree murder of Phili Woldermariam. “Murder was the Case is an incredible story. Snoop had the biggest album in the country and was fighting for his freedom in the courtroom. The only place to go on this incredible ride is with G-Unit Film & Television. I’m excited to be working with Snoop to bring it to television. #GLG,” 50 shared. Snoop added, “This was a pivotal moment in my life and career and I’ve deliberately waited until I found the right partner to bring this to the screen. #GLG. You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge.”
