*Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is going all in with Starz, the cable network that airs his successful drama series “Power.”
Starz today announced it has signed to a two-year exclusive overall deal with 50’s G Unit Film & Television, Inc. The deal calls for Jackson to develop new projects for the network and continue as executive producer on “Power.”
“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 50.
Production on “Power’s” 10-episode third season began earlier this month at its home base at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn. A 10-episode run has been ordered for season three.
“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.
