Tupac series on FX is breaking records for the network.

The 5-part “Dear Mama” series just kicked off on April 21.

Just a day later, it was available to stream.

However, it is already proving to be a hit with fans, as the combined performance shows.

It is now the most-watched premiere for an unscripted series to appear in the history of the network.

You can see the trailer below.

The overall theme of the show is based on a lesson Pac learned from his mother at an early age.

As said in the trailer, Afeni describes the teaching this way –

“It was my responsibility to teach Tupac how to survive his reality. So, Tupac do something wrong, take your little sorry self in that corner, get the New York Times and let’s have a debate about it. Not a discussion, a debate. Let me hear what your idea is, stand up, defend it.”

The series is described as an intimate wide-angle portrait of the most inspiring and dangerous mother-son duo in American history, whose unified message of freedom, equality, persecution, and justice is more relevant today than ever.

The President of FX Entertainment, Nick Grad had something to say about the direction of the series.

Speaking on the director, Allen Hughes he says –

“It’s only fitting that Allen Hughes’ definitive piece on Tupac and Afeni Shakur delivered a record performance for us and it speaks to Tupac’s enduring legacy. Allen’s examination of Tupac viewed through the prism of his mother Afeni is a fascinating take that really gets beneath the education and experience that shaped his life and inspired him to become one of the greatest artists ever.”
