By 2013, most people agreed 50 Cent would probably never have the same music success he enjoyed, early in his career. A year later, none of that mattered. When his series, “Power,” launched on Starz, 50 Cent was the biggest name of the summer, as Kanan.
Released from prison, Kanan wanted revenge on Ghost (Omari Hardwick), who became successful, in the hustling game, after setting him up to go to prison. When he returned, Ghost lived in a penthouse and purchased a nightclub. Each year, their battles are more intense.
50 Cent would reach a developmental deal with the Starz network, earlier this year. As he is preparing the BMF series, 50 Cent has reached a bigger deal. Now, his situation with Starz has been extended to September 2019, definitely adding more Ms to his bank account.
Read the statement from Starz below:
“I am extremely pleased to expand my partnership with Starz and Lionsgate,” Jackson said. “This investment in my television and film ventures through G-Unit Film & Television will launch a wide range of new original scripted and unscripted programming I’m looking forward to everyone seeing.”
Starz CEO & President Chris Albrecht added, “This deal recognizes how Curtis’ abilities have gone beyond music and business to include acting and show creation. We’re pleased to continue our relationship and bring new projects to his current and future fans.”
