Gerald K. Barclay's documentary "Wu: The Story of the Wu-Tang Clan" will premiere Nov. 13 on BET, five days before its release on DVD. The film chronicles the pioneering hip-hop group's rise from Staten Island through interviews and a wealth of rare footage.

"Wu" will air multiple times between Nov. 13-16 and again in December as the holiday season approaches. During debut week, members of the Wu-Tang Clan are scheduled to appear on BET's "106 & Park" to discuss the project.

In addition, an accompanying CD will be released Nov. 18 via BET/Legacy, featuring a blend of Wu-Tang hits and tracks from the members' solo albums.

In other Wu news, the group last week teamed with the Orchard to make its back catalog available digitally worldwide for the first time. Also now available are 13 releases from Wu-Tang and its affiliates which have never been sold in this format.
