50 Cent Starz Deal in FULL EFFECT!
50 Cent makes good TV for Starz and we are happy to hear that their original programing for the next couple years will include multiple shows by the G-Unit leader.
On Wednesday, it was revealed that Fif inked a 8-figure extension deal with the cable network Star to executive produce a couple more shows other than their hit-series Power.
“Black Mafia Family” – #BMF is reportedly inspired by the story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and the intersection of the drug industry and the music industry. Whereas the other upcoming series “Tomorrow, Today,” is being described as a super-hero vigilante story. It will follow a war veteran from the south side of Chicago who is falsely imprisoned, according to its press release. He then becomes the experiment of a prison doctor hellbent on creating the perfect man and an unstoppable killing machine. The vet, who goes on the run, decides to use his abilities for good in a world that has turned against him.
50 Cent said:
“I am extremely pleased to expand my partnership with Starz and Lionsgate. 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.”
50 Cent still has his deal with BET, where his series 50 Central show, just saw its first season finale on Wednesday night.
A judge recently threw out a lawsuit where he was accused of ripping off someone else’s work to create his hit show, “Power.”
The court said these are common elements that are in the public domain and “One need only look to such shows and movies as The Wire, Empire, Breaking Bad, Narcos, Weeds, Carlito’s Way, American Gangster, New Jack City, Scarface and Paid in Full.” – TMZ
