EAST ORANGE, NJ — Shut the streets down and “Enter the Wu”. This week, parts of North Arlington Ave. in East Orange were closed for the filming of “Wu Tang Clan: An American Saga.” The television series can be viewed on Hulu.
Wu-Tang shocked the world with their 1993 debut album, “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)”. The groups rhymes have been described as impassioned, raw, idiosyncratic and almost nerdy. Now the groups story and rise to fame is being told in a television series.
The cast and crew were in East Orange to film the second season of the show. IMDB's description of the show reads, “In early 1990s New York, Bobby Diggs strives to unite a dozen young black men who are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.”
The first season appeared on September 4, 2019, with 10 episodes. Starring Ashton Sanders, Shameik Moore, Siddiq Saunderson, Dave East, T.J. Atoms, Zolee Griggs, and more. The program creators are RZA, Alex Tse, and the Executive Producers: Brian Grazer, Alex Tse, RZA, Method Man.
Season two is expected to be released late 2021.
