According to Essence, “Twenty Four Seven” will be co–executive produced by 50 and T.I. through their respective production companies, G Unit Film & Television and Grand Hustle Entertainment. Dallas Jackson is serving as the writer and a co–executive producer. 

Co-author Parker gushed to Complex about the series finally coming together.  

“It took a long time, but thank God it’s going to television,” he said before commenting on T.I. embodying him for this role. “I think it’s great. I think he’ll have a chance to see what kind of person I am, and I think he’ll like me. He’ll see how I am—everybody’s not bad cops. With everything that’s going on with cops, people think that all cops are bad. And he’ll see me, and he’ll see a different side of how the police really work.”

No information has been released yet about the cast or premiere date. 

In related news, T.I. previously challenged 50 Cent to a Verzuz battle, but the “Power” actor declined. During an appearance on Ebro in the Morning, Tip addressed why he decided to challenge him. 

“I just think [50 has] got an ego big enough to withstand my bravado,”  he said. “I don’t think he’d be intimidated by how I pop my shit … You got to get a gorilla for a gorilla. And regardless of how you see me, inside me there’s a 900 pound gorilla … We really are similarly stacked. I don’t have a diamond album (like 50), but he don’t have five classic albums.”
