Starz Network Picks Up 50 Cent’s Produced Drama Series “Power”
50 Cent has been working on a new drama series called Power for the Starz Network and now it's been picked up the show!
The show is expected later this year with 50 serving as one of the executive producers. He’s also been working on some songs for the series as well.
Here’s a synopsis of the show via Deadline:
Power, which has received an eight-episode order, tells the story of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a wealthy New York City nightclub owner who wants to build an empire, turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there's just one problem: Ghost is living a double life as the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York. His marriage, family and business all become unknowingly threatened as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he wants to be most of all. “Curtis has a unique and specific vision for the series, lending it an authenticity and voice rarely seen,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said. “Courtney has created a rich world and characters not often explored in contemporary drama. There is a rawness and soul to the character of Ghost as he struggles
to live between these two worlds.”
Power explores “a world of beauty, luxury, danger and death, all against the struggle of one man to define his nature and his soul,” Agboh said. “While the power and peril of Ghost's world are specific, we hope to address the truly universal questions we all face when we look in the mirror: who am I? Where am I going? Who do I want to become?”
The show should be interesting because with 50 behind the show, you can expect a thrilling storyline.
