Unsolved is largely based on the experiences of former Los Angeles Police Department detective Greg Kading. Kading documented his experiences with the two murder cases in his 2011 book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations and will serve as a consultant for the show.

Earlier this year, Hemingway won an Outstanding Limited Series Emmy for his work on The People v. O.J. Simpson. He has previously directed episodes of Orange Is the New Black, Empire, Glee, and The Newsroom.
