What is Kings From Queens: The RUN DMC Story about? 

The upcoming Peacock Original tells the never-been-told story of the most influential rap group in the history of music, RUN DMC. Before going on to become hip-hop legends who legitimized a genre of music that critics labeled a fad, Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, and Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell met on the streets of Hollis, Queens. Their influence on culture shattered racial barriers, making them international stars and fashion leaders of the ‘80s.  

In the series, Rev Run and DMC reunite to finally tell their story, years after a series of life-changing events and challenges, including the murder of the beloved Jam Master Jay. Through interviews, the series celebrates the genre of music they established.
