The entreprenuer has been working behind the scenes on a few television shows, some of which have officially been announced.
Building on his relationship with Starz, 50 Cent will be producing two new series for the network. The first, tentatively titled “Moment in Time: The Massacre,” will explore his 12-year relationship with former G-Unit member The Game. In the show’s premiere season, it will break down the tension between the former collaborators that eventually “led to an all-out street war, pitting G-Unit against music impresario Jimmy Henchman, resulting in a murder-for-hire plot and Henchman serving a life sentence in prison,” per NME.
50’s second series is based on lawyer and sports agent Nicole Lynn whose clientele consists of Quinnen Williams of the New York Jets, the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Quincy Williams and Ogbonnia Okoronkwo of the Los Angeles Rams. The show will detail her experiences working in a male-dominated field and the steps she took to become the first Black woman to have a client as a top-three NFL draft pick.
Aside from his work with Starz, 50 Cent will be working alongside longtime friend and “The Breakfast Club” co-host DJ Envy. The rapper took to Instagram to unveil their upcoming series which will look into the real estate market in New Jersey. “I was thinking wouldn’t it be great to see @flipping_nj and @djenvy on TV, so you can understand the real estate business,” he wrote on Instagram. “Done deal!”
Method Man, who plays high-powered attorney Davis MacLean, in “Power Book II: Ghost” praised 50 Cent fo his work in a recent interview. “The work that y’all put in, Fif, it changed a lot of shit to the point where it’s like you couldn’t give up on the show,” he told XXL. “Each week the ratings is going up and up and up, and it’s strictly really word of mouth. The people did that, you know what I mean? But what brought them there is you. You brought them there. Now what kept ’em coming back is definitely the storylines and how authentic everything fucking is at the end of the day and shit.”
The news of 50 Cent’s latest ventures come after Starz ordered “Power Book IV: Force,” a series about Joseph Sikora’s character, Tommy Egan.
His ABC series “For Life” has also reportedly moved forward with production after a temporary hiatus, per Deadline.
