Jay-Z‘s Rest in Power docuseries explores the events leading up to Trayvon Martin’s death at the hands of George Zimmerman, which played a big role in the Black Lives Matter movement. Jay-Z has teamed up with Paramount network to tell the tragic story. Monday, the network released a short clip of the trailer for the upcoming docu-series. Instead of focusing on the murder, it will also delve into the story of the roles of race, gender, money and politics of the American justice system. It is a six-part series that Martin’s parents wrote about.
JAY-Z serves as an executive producer of the non-scripted project along with Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin, Chachi Senior, Michael Gasparro, Jenner Furst, Julia Willoughby Nason and Nick Sandow. Peep the trailer, which features narratives and headlines to the plot of the story of the case. It will be premiering in July.
