Drake is back at it again.

On Thursday (March 26), Billboard announced that Drake and his co-manager, Adel “Future” Nur, will serve as executive producers on a new series titled “48 Laws Of Power,” which is set to premiere on Quibi. The series is based on Robert Greene’s bestselling book.

In addition to producing, Drake is set to direct an episode, as well. “When Drake and I sat down with Robert Greene, it was incredibly inspiring,” Future said in a statement to Billboard. “The laws allow for a wide range of dynamic storytelling, and Quibi allows us to tell these stories in bite-sized chapters similar to the book.”

Like Future, Greene also shared a similar sentiment about the upcoming series. “I have always thought that ‘48 Laws of Power’ would be a perfect fit for a series, bringing to life the timeless Machiavellian game of power as portrayed in the book,” Greene explained. “But it was not until Drake and Future with Anonymous Content approached me with their unique cinematic approach to the laws that I knew I could join forces with them and go all in for a filmed interpretation of my work.”

As Drizzy’s fans might recall, this isn’t the first time that he has been recruited to executive produce a series. Back in June 2019, news surfaced that the Scorpion rapper would serve as a producer on HBO’s hit show “Euphoria,” which was recently approved for season two. He also serves as a producer on Netflix’s series “Top Boy.” At the time of the show’s premiere in London, the 33-year-old thanked the cast and crew for their hard work.

“You all made it happen, I just really wanted it to happen. To the cast, new and old, the crew, the writers, the production team — everybody that pulled this all together. I really do appreciate it,” he said in September 2019.
