Jay Z Is Making A Trayvon Martin Movie And Docuseries


After partnering up with Harvey Weinstein to produce “Time: The Kalief Browder Story,” Jay Z and the Weinstein company are joining forces once again to produce a docu-series and movie about Trayvon Martin.

Variety is reporting that the two have acquired the rights to the books “Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It” and “Rest In Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin.”

"Suspicion Nation" explains "the six biggest mistakes" Florida made during George Zimmerman's case and allowed him to walk free after killing the 17-year-old. "Rest In Power" was written by Trayvon's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, and detailed the slain teen's childhood, as well as the aftermath of his death.

"The plan is to make a six-part docu-series with Jay Z producing as part of a first-look deal he signed with the studio last September," Variety says. "The indie studio will also develop a narrative feature film."
