A docu-series on Tupac Shakur

Director Allen Hughes, who helmed the award-winning documentary "The Defiant Ones," has closed a deal with Tupac Shakur's estate for a five-part docu-series for which he will have full access to all of the late rappers released and unreleased recordings, writings, and poetry, according to an announcement from his representative.

The announcement says the series will be "the first definitive, comprehensive project on Shakur with the full cooperation of the estate," reports variety.com.

A representative for the estate confirmed the deal.

Hughes will direct and is an executive producer with Lasse J?rvi and Charles D. King. A representative for Hughes declined to provide further information.
