Via Complex:

Raising Kanan is a prequel story that is set in the 1990s and follows the life of 50 Cent’s character, Kanan Stark. Influence will follow Rashad Tate’s (Larenz Tate) quest to be as powerful as possible. As for Force, the series will focus on Tommy Egan’s struggle to cut ties with his street life and move away from New York City. All of these series will be produced by creator Courtney A. Kemp’s End of Episode company.

“In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time,” Starz’s president and CEO, Jeffrey Hirsch, said when talking about the spinoff series. “These new and exciting chapters will continue the journey of some of Power‘s most controversial characters while featuring a growing ensemble of complex, distinct characters along with the high-octane drama that set Power in a class of its own.”

*One day after announcing he’s leaving the NFL Network after 14 years, Deion Sanders announced Wednesday that he’s moving on to Barstool Sports. 

“BREAKING NEWS: Primetime. Primetime. Primetime. It’s a new age. Primetime has joined Barstool Sports,” tweeted Barstool, along with a video of Sanders talking about his new gig, TheWrap reports. 

“Now, I have the platform that I can spread what I got to the masses. Oh baby, thank you !” Sanders exclaimed. “Barstool has the young generation of fans I want to help cultivate. I want to mold you. I want to talk to you. I want to speak to you. See, I love to speak my mind and now baby I got the platform to do it year-round. Controversy ain’t never scared me. See, podcasts are the future; I’m so excited about this opportunity, but I’m also excited to continue my relationship with the NFL … in some capacity.”

“What a move by us,” founder Dave Portnoy wrote in a post on the sports website, noting that Barstool Sports “stealing him away from the NFL network.”

“Let me ask you this,” he added. “What NFL pregame show are you gonna watch this year? Me, Big Cat and Primetime from his ranch in Dallas or the suits at the other networks.”

“Deion has been one of the key figures responsible for the growth of the NFL Network,” NFL VP of communications Alex Riethmiller said in a Tuesday statement. “We thank him for his work and wish him the best in the future.”

Sanders will have a podcast, make regular appearances on the Pardon My Take podcast, and also be part of a Sunday pregame show, per MSN.

The NFL Hall of Famer was recently criticized after he slammed NFL players who decided to opt-out of the coming season over concerns regarding COVID-19.

“All Players OPTING out in all sports PLEASE BELIEVE the game will go on without u. This is a business & don’t u EVER forget that. There’s NO ONE that’s bigger than the game itself. Only the ref, umps & officials are that important that u can’t play without them. NOT YOU! #Truth,” he wrote on his Twitter account.

*We previously reported that Leslie David Baker, who played Stanley on NBC’s “The Office,” launched a Kickstarter campaign for a spinoff centered on his character.

Baker and his business partner, producer Sardar Khan, have since passed their goal of $300,000 to shoot the pilot. They plan to shop it to networks and streaming platforms.

The actor is now sharing some of the racist messages he received in reaction to the campaign.

“For those of you who don’t believe racism is still alive in the world…here’s the proof,” he captioned a Instagram post of screenshots of some of the comments he received, including photos of a lynching. Check out the post below.

MOREREAD : ‘The Office’ Star Leslie David Baker Launches Kickstarter for ‘Uncle Stan’ Spinoff

On the official campaign page for the project, the proposed “Uncle Stan” spinoff will follow Stanley Hudson’s post-retirement. The fundraiser makes no mention of “The Office” or showrunner Greg Daniels or original series creator Ricky Gervais, most likely due to copyright issues, per Complex.

“After enjoying his retirement in Florida, carving wood, enjoying the white sand beaches, and dancing to old disco, Uncle Stan (Leslie David Baker) gets a call from his nephew Lucky in Los Angeles asking for help with his two kids and running his motorcycle/flower shop,” the Kickstarter reads. “With his business failing, his kids growing up without enough attention, and on the brink of losing his patience with the cast of characters he has working in the shop, Lucky is going to need all the help he can get from no-nonsense Uncle Stan.”

The campaign also notes the risks and challenges, stating: Any time a large scale production such as Uncle Stan takes place, there is a chance that challenges might arise. With our team of entertainment professionals that between them have decades of experience in the industry, we will help ensure that we stick to our scheduled production and reward fulfillment schedule.
