*A copyright lawsuit has been filed against Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, CBS Television and Starz Entertainment over the popular series, “Power.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, plaintiffs R. Byron Hord and Curtis Scoon claim they wrote a script about a drug dealer’s attempt to “go legit.” They say they met with TV executives in 2010, who then pitched 50 Cent the following year. 50 Cent never contacted the plaintiffs.

Now, the lawsuit seeks to enjoin “Power” from future infringement.

The series just wrapped its third season on Sunday.

In July, “Power” was renewed for a fourth and fifth season following its record-breaking 2.26 million viewers for the season 3 premiere.
