Haitian Jack Mini-Series On The Way
The story of well-known promoter and music manager Jacques “Haitian Jack” Agnant is on its way. An eight-episode miniseries exploring his life will be directed by Benny Boom and developed by former Interscope Records co-founder Ted Field and his Radar Pictures. Here’s the description of the mini series:
[It] will explore Haitian Jack’s journey as an immigrant from Haiti thrust into the mean streets of Brooklyn at the height of the New York crack epidemic. As he transitions from private schools to becoming a feared stick-up artist targeting drug dealers, Jack finds himself in the cutthroat music business during the most controversial period in hip-hop history.
Benny Boom shared about the project,
Haitian Jack’s story is extraordinary and the opportunity to explore his life through a television series is incredible. Crime, drugs violence and music as told through his experiences will be a groundbreaking moment for television.
Haitian Jack, whose former business associates included Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, Wyclef Jean and Madonna, will be a technical adviser for the project. No additional details have yet been released.
