Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa and GZA are consulting producers. Chris Robinson directed and exec produced the pilot.
The official description: Set in early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, Black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.
