Kenya Ware (DPG Eulogy) is set to executive produce The Untitled D.P. G., a drama series that revolves around the Hip-Hop backstory of Tha Dogg Pound, the gangsta rap duo featuring Daz Dillinger and Kurupt.  Ware will exec produce alongside Damien Zellous, who produced the feature documentary DPG Eulogy in 2005 with Ware

The drama series will be based on the experiences of Snoop Dogg and Dillinger’s experiences with Tha Dogg Pound.  Tha Dogg Pound made their first appearance in 1992 on Dr. Dre’s The Chronic album that launched on Death Row records. They also appeared on Snoop’s multi platinum 1993 debut Doggy Style.  The series will provide a more in-depth look at the group’s dynamic, revealing stories that haven’t been told about the early days at Death Row and all of the surrounding drama.

“Snoop and I are always being asked to assist others with their Death Row projects because we were there from the beginning, until the demise,” Dillinger said, according to Deadline. “We saw Dre leave, Pac murdered, and we were forced to run the company when Suge Knight went back to prison. Our perspective is honest and unique. There are countless stories that the world has never heard about those early days.”

The Untitled D.P. G. will join a host of true and fictionalized hip-hop backstories that serve as the basis for several film and television projects including Straight Outta Compton,  All Eyez on Me, The Get Down, and The Breaks.

The untitled television series, is currently being pitched to national networks.
