Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nuthing ta f— with, but both Hulu and Showtime are messing with their story in separate biographical projects this year. Hulu’s “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” is the scripted version to Showtime’s documentary, which is already out, so exactly how accurate to the rap group’s life story will the still-upcoming one be?
That was the first question Friday at the show’s Television Critics Association press tour panel.
“We like to call it a historical fiction,” co-creator, writer and executive producer Alex Tse told reporters. “So, there are things in it that actually happened, there are versions of events, some moving around the timeline — but spiritually it’s very truthful and accurate.”

“You condense the moments,” The RZA, who carries the same titles as Tse, explained. “It’s like concentrated grape juice. Let the audience [bring] water to it.”
“You’ll be able to balance what’s reality and what ain’t,” the actual member of Wu-Tang Clan said.
In addition to RZA, Wu-Tang Clan is made up of Method Man, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, GZA, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Cappadonna and Masta Killa.
