USA’s Unsolved: The Murders of Biggie and Tupac has added Aisha Hinds and LeToya Luckett to its cast! Per Variety, the anthology series is based on the experiences of former LAPD Detective Greg Kading (Josh Duhamel), who led multiple law-enforcement task forces investigating the murders. Kading consulted on the script and will serve as a co-executive producer on the pilot, from Universal Cable Productions. Anthony Hemingway will direct and executive produce along with Mark Taylor and Kyle Long, who wrote the pilot.

Aisha Hinds has been cast as Voletta Wallace, Biggie Smalls’ mom, who talked to her son every day before his death and, ever since, has never stopped seeking justice. Hinds is currently shining on WGN America’s Underground as Harriet Tubman, as well as Fox’s limited series Shots Fired from Gina Prince-Bythewood.

LeToya Luckett will play Sharitha Golden, the estranged wife of Death Row records CEO Suge Knight and one of the only people seemingly not intimidated by him in 1997. Luckett has recurred on Fox’s Rosewood and HBO’s Ballers. As an original member of Destiny’s Child, she co-wrote classics “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Say My Name” and her third album is set for a 2017 release.

The two ladies will join the recently announced addition of Luke James (as Sean “Puffy” Combs) and the previously announced cast of Marcc Rose (playing Tupac Shakur), Wavyy Jonez (playing Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace), Bokeem Woodbine, Josh Duhamel, and Jimmi Simpson.
