50 Cent is gearing up to make an 8 Mile TV series.

During a recent interview 50 Cent says, “I’m gonna bring [Eminem’s] 8 Mile to television…We in motion.” He says he believes the show should be created for Eminem’s legacy. “It’s gonna be big. I’m working. I ain’t got no duds. I’m batting 100.”

He further explained, “think Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The new version of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I want to be able to show and offer a lot more details. Things that you would say in an interview or different things that you’ve already used that you put out there and stuff like that. You’ll see those things kind of surface in the temperament of the characters.”


8 Mile was released back in 2002 and was a box office success. It debuted at No. 1 in the US with $51.3 million grossed in its opening weekend and an eventual total of $242.9 million worldwide.
