When Jay-Z said “Im a business, man,” he wasn’t playing.
Jay-Z is set to produce NBC’s new drama about Nicholas Irving, the first African American Special Ops Sniper. Irving is a former Special Ops Direct Action Sniper in the 3rd Ranger Battalion for the U.S Military.
It is reported that Sterling K. Brown who won an Emmy for his “The People V.s OJ Simpson: American Crime Story,” will star as Irving. According to sources, the series will be based upon Irving’s 2015 memoir, “The Reaper: The Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers.”
A long, but exciting weekend ahead going over the first 4 hours of script for “THE REAPER” TV series before #gotime ! A few pages in already and feels like I’m back in it with the boys! I’d be lying if I said the show won’t give you a few heart attacks. Lol. Unbelievable how great the writers are getting it done!
