Hiphop mogul Curtis "50 Cent'' Jackson has inked a non-exclusive broadcast deal with Fox after creating numerous blockbuster series for Starz, including the growing POWER franchise and BLACK MAFIA FAMILY.
According to Variety, the hip-hop mogul and his production company G-Unit Film & Television have agreed to deliver scripted dramas, live action comedies, and animated series. These will be shown by the network and produced by Fox Entertainment Studios, in collaboration with Fif's banner.
"I am delighted to establish a collaboration with Michael Thorn and Fox that will allow G-Unit Film & Television to focus on putting numerous series on Fox, a natural broadcast destination for G-Unit Film & Television material," 50 stated in an official statement. He also celebrated the deal on Instagram.
During the show's Season 2 premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood in January, 50 Cent teased three BLACK MAFIA FAMILY spinoffs. “They got some really, really smart executives coming in to help rebuild Starz in the right way. And it’s exciting for me,” 50 shared. “You’ll get a chance to see three spinoff shows from BMF. It’s BMF immortal.”
50 has a history of sending barbs at Starz, including last May when he wrote, “Hey guys I decided I don’t want to move forward with The Massacre in STARZ production slate. It’s a waste of time and money, and it doesn’t fit the new Premium women’s mandate over there. It was a companion piece with snoops (Murder was the case) I'll find a new network better fit to tell my story Lionsgate.”
