A New Docuseries on Tupac & Afeni Shakur’s Relationship.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, FX has released the teaser on Sunday (May 8), for their upcoming docuseries, “Dear Mama.” The show will take a behind-the-scenes look at the life of the legendary Tupac and his mother, activist Afeni Shakur.
The teaser for the five-part docuseries, named after 2Pac’s 1995 hit song, doesn’t show much aside from a voiceover from Afeni describing a lesson she taught her son when he was younger. “It was my responsibility to teach 2Pac how to survive his reality,” Shakur says in the clip. “So, 2Pac do something wrong, take your little sorry self in that corner, get the New York Times and let’s have a debate about it. Not a discussion, a debate. Let me hear what your idea is, stand up, defend it.”
FX describes Dear Mama in its press release as being told through the eyes of the people who knew them best─“an intimate wide-angle portrait of the most inspiring and dangerous mother-son duo in American history, whose unified message of freedom, equality, persecution and justice are more relevant today than ever.”
Dear Mama premieres this fall.
