Power has been doing great things for rapper/producer/entrepreneur 50 Cent, and it seems that Starz agrees.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that 50 Cent has signed a two-year exclusive overall deal with the premium network, meaning that 50 and his G Unit Film & Television banner will be creating and producing new shows for Starz while still holding down executive producing duties for Power. In a statement, Fiddy says that “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.”
The second season of Power was the most-watched original series in Starz’s history, averaging at 6.8 million viewers. Season three begins filming in Brooklyn this month.
