Not Afraid: The Shady Records Story Ft. Eminem, 50 Cent, & Dr. Dre

We all know Eminem if you’re from Detroit. Between him, Kid Rock and Jack White, they are a big part of the popular music zeitgeist from the city as of late.

Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Narc, a movie from 2002 by Joe Carnahan, is going to become a TV show – and not only that, Eminem is in negotiations to join the project as an executive producer and music supervisor as well as write some original songs.

Joe Carnahan has written a pilot script, according to the report, and is set to direct and executive produce the drama for Paramount TV.

Like in the movie, which starred Ray Liotta and Jason Patric as Detroit police detectives investigating the murder of an undercover cop, the city will have a major presence on the show, also a crime thriller. It was put in development by Paramount TV about a year ago.

We don’t know yet when it will be on TV or what network you’ll be able to find it at.

If this actually does happen and it gets picked up by a network, this might be among the bigger media spectacles since the show Detroit 187 was a thing. Remember that?
