Good news for rapper, actor and producer, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson! He just scored an exclusive overall deal with STARZ, the network that airs his hugely popular television series, “Power.”
According to the press release, Jackson will develop new projects for the network and continue as executive producer on “Power” under his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc.
“Starz has been the perfect partner to make ‘Power’ the success that it is and I am looking forward to developing many more record-breaking series with them,” says Jackson.
“Curtis is a wonderful hands-on producer and actor on ‘Power’ and we look forward to expanding his roles behind-the-camera with Starz over the next two years,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz.
“Power” season two averaged more than 6.8 million viewers per episode, tracking favorably to be the most highly watched-season ever for a STARZ Original series.*
Production on the show’s third season began earlier this month at the series’ home base at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn. A 10-episode run has been ordered for season three.
Congrats and stay tuned!
