In the early ’90s, while the world was falling in love with Animaniacs, Dunkaroos, and Super Mario Kart, New York was experiencing the height of the crack cocaine epidemic. In this hectic hellscape, a plucky young rapper named Bobby Diggs, known to friends and audiences as RZA, struggles to unite a dozen fellow artists under one banner. This, of course, is easier said than done.
With show creators The RZA and Alex Tse, the miniseries showcases twelve artists torn between their love of music and the crime-ridden reality that engulfed each of their lives. Wu-Tang: An American Saga is the dramatized origins of one of the most iconic rap groups of all time, who break the odds to become one of the biggest American success stories of the era.
