Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson will have another series with Starz.
Back in 2018, he signed a massive multi-series overall deal with the network, and he’s one of the creative minds behind Black Mafia Family.
Jackson’s Power was a huge hit at Starz and it inspired four upcoming spinoffs set in the same universe, Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanana, Power Book IV: Influence, and Power Book V: Force.
Black Mafia Family is based on the true story of two brothers, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, who rose up from the streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s and were part of one of the most influential crime families in the country. Their leadership and business sense allowed the duo to move beyond the drug trade and into the Hip Hop world.
“I told you ‘Black Mafia Family’ was coming and it’s going to be the biggest show on television,” Jackson said. “Meech and Terry are legends and I am excited to bring their story to Starz.”
Jackson will exec produce Black Mafia Family with Star and Power producer Randy Huggins. He currently has an ABC show, For Life, and he was recently given a star on the Walk of Fame.
