Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, now “28 Cent” due to inflation, appears to have patched up his relationship with the Starz network after a very public social; media outburst. When they failed to renew Power Book IV: Force quickly he took to Instagram to vent:
“This is me packing my stuff, STARZ sucks, my deal is up over here I’m out. They renewed Hightown and Force is the highest rated show [but] they have it sitting in limbo.”
The series was eventually renewed for a second season, even though it has yet to be dated. Now the producer aims to turn his crime drama BMF (Black Mafia Family) into a franchise.
During the show’s second season premiere in Los Angeles he declared that he is turning it into a television universe called BMF Immortal with plans for three spinoffs in progress.
Jackson does not have an exclusive deal with the streamer after it was allowed to lapse, but they are making a number of series together. Jackson and Starz are also developing a new series titled Fightland which is set within the high-stakes, seedy underbelly of British boxing.
The series will follow a former world champion boxer who, after his childhood best friend and training partner goes missing, is pulled into the corrupt underworld of the sport. In order to save his friend:
“…the troubled fighter will have to return to a way of life that nearly destroyed him – one that cost him everything to leave behind.”
Talking about the upcoming show, Kathryn Busby, President, Original Programming at Starz said:
“Fightland embodies the stakes, swagger and ambition that collaborations between Starz and 50 Cent have come to represent.”
He’s also developing the animated superhero series “Trill League” at BET+ which will be produced by G-Unit Film & TV, 3 Arts, and Lionsgate Television.
