In November, 50 Cent announced he was going to make Snoop Dogg's 1996 murder trial into a Starz series titled Murder Was The Case.
I’m afraid this is going to be a problem for everything on Tv. A moment in time ( MURDER WAS THE CASE ) when the dream you have been wishing for feels like a nightmare.

In 1993, Snoop Dogg's bodyguard shot and killed a rival gang member. Snoop was driving the car, and they were both charged with murder.
In 1996, they were both acquitted with Johnnie Cochrane representing them in court and arguing self-defense.
While that sounds like some solid premium cable fare, Starz ultimately pulled the plug. 50 Cent, who's been at odds with Starz, disagreed with the decision.
"Murder was the case is no longer in production at STARZ. I give them the alley-00p they drop the damn ball. Anway i hope snoop tell his story," 50 typed.
