(AllHipHop News) Atlanta-bred artist B.o.B revealed his participation with the production.
“It’s an honor to announce that I’ll be joining the cast of Siege Of Detroit,” said Bobby Ray in an Instagram video. “It’s also an honor to be working with veteran filmmaker Warrington Hudlin and also working alongside martial arts extraordinaire Marrese Crump.”
Hudlin launched an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign to raise funds for the project.
The Indiegogo description for The Siege Of Detroit reads in part:
The narrative ambition of this groundbreaking TV series is to reveal the political and personal high drama on the front line of resistance. Written to resonate with both baby boomers and millennials, we anticipate viewers becoming emotionally engaged with and inspired by the characters and their heroic resistance.
The need for this type of storytelling has become more urgent as American enters the era of the Donald Trump presidency. Like the characters in our story, we are standing up to defend human rights and to fight the power of anyone and everyone who attempts to take it away.
The production team is attempting to raise $500,000 to shoot episode one.
Eventually, $3 million will be needed for the first three episodes of the pilot season.
As of press time, The Siege of Detroit has collected around $800 in donations through Indiegogo.
