Recent reports indicate that Jay-Z will be producing an NBC series about the Army’s first African-American sniper, Nicholas Irving.
According to Page Six, the six-hour miniseries will be based on Irving’s 2015 memoir The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers.
Rights to the book were purchased by Jay-Z’s new business partners film production, The Weinstein Company.
“The series will take a look inside the life of the world of special ops. The plan is to start filming early next year,” a source informed when inquired about the show.
Sterling K. Brown who currently appears in This Is Us and recently won an Emmy for The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story will play the role of Irving in the series.
Irving tallied an astronomical 33 kills as a master sniper in a four-month period in 2009, leading to him being dubbed “The Reaper,” and even having an AR-15 rifle named after him.
