50 Cent has cemented his talents at Starz with his hit TV show Power, and the network has worked out a multi-series deal worth up to $150 million with the famed entertainer. The deal will include a three-series commitment through his G-Unit Film and Television company.
50 responded saying:
“When I sat down with Chris [Albrecht, Starz CEO] and walked him through my plans for G-Unit Film & Television going forward, he let me know I was essentially requesting the biggest deal in premium cable history. I am excited to announce that we’ve made that partnership between myself, G-Unit Film & Television and Starz/Lionsgate and we will continue our proven track record of breaking records and delivering unique content for audiences around the world … Get The Strap.”
Two new series have already been announced. Black Mafia Family, which will follow the story of BMF CEO Big Meech, and Vanguard, which will tell the story of a man who returns back from his Navy tours to defend his family from a drug cartel.
