Oh? 50 Cent Teams Up With FOX For New Series—Despite All Of The “Empire” Shade
Nearly one year after Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson accused FOX of duplicating the marketing strategy used to promote his Starz television series, “Power,” the rapper-turned-actor has joined forces with the TV network.
According to Deadline, Jackson and Packer will be serving as executive producers for comedy series, “My Friend 50,” which centers around Amanda Kramer, “an unstable twentysomething who believes that joining 50 Cent’s entourage is the answer to all of her problems.”
As the series continues, the female lead’s “unlikely journey with 50 Cent’s crew takes the form of a bizarre documentary commissioned by the most unreliable narrator in history: Amanda.”
Outside of the fact that Jackson will be making occasional appearances on the series, no casting decisions have been announced. From what we gather, Jackson will continue his relationship with Starz, and is set to develop new programs for the cable channel courtesy of his new two-year deal.
Does this sound like a series you’d be interested in adding to your weekly line-up?
