Abacus Media Rights (AMR) has secured international distribution rights (excluding Free TV in the UK) to "Last Man Standing: Suge Knight and the Murders of Biggie & Tupac", the brand-new documentary feature from distinguished, multiple award-winning filmmaker, Nick Broomfield ("Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love", "Whitney: Can I Be Me", "My Father and Me", "Kurt & Courtney").

Commissioned by the BBC, this hard-hitting documentary tells the story of Suge Knight, the former CEO of legendary rap music label Death Row Records, who was recently sentenced to 28 years imprisonment for manslaughter and other violent crimes not typically associated with a highly successful record executive.

The film takes a look at Death Row and how L.A.’s street gang culture had come to dominate its business workings, as well as an association with corrupt LA police officers who were also gang-affiliated.  It would be this world of gang rivalry and dirty cops that would claim the lives of the world’s two greatest rappers: Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.

From production company South Central Project Limited "Last Man Standing: Suge Knight and the Murders of Biggie & Tupac" is due for completion in January 2021. Ordered by Patrick Holland, Controller BBC Two and commissioned by Jan Younghusband, Head of Music TV Commissioning. 

Jonathan Ford, Managing Director, AMR comments, “This is yet another superb, cutting-edge documentary feature from Nick Broomfield which we are extremely pleased to represent on the global market.  Since Suge commenced his 28-year sentence, questions have been raised regarding the involvement of the LAPD in these murders. This uncompromising film comes up with new, eye-opening evidence regarding the case and reveals how the police force in LA and the city’s infamous street gangs are interlaced.”
