50 Cent Is Currently Developing A Superhero Series
Starz has recently extended its overall deal with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson for another year into September 2018. Thanks to the record breaking success garnered from Power, the Starz team has agreed to team up with the mogul once more for a brand new series called “Tomorrow, Today”.
The project is the first in development from Jackson and G-Unit Film & Television, Inc. The concept is based on a screenplay written by Jackson, who will also act as executive producer, much like he currently does for Power. “I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with my Starz family, we have had great success together on ‘Power’ and I am excited to get going on all of our upcoming projects together,” Jackson said in a statement.
“I knew Starz would be the perfect home for ‘Tomorrow, Today.’ This project is very personal to me…creating it, writing it, finding the best team for it and I will continue to be involved every step of the way”.
“Tomorrow, Today” is a superhero-themed series about a veteran from the south side of Chicago who, after being falsely imprisoned, becomes the personal experiment of a deranged prison doctor trying to create the perfect man – and an unstoppable killing machine. Set free, but on the run, the veteran must reconcile with the world that has turned against him, and use his newfound abilities for good. 50 has really been working behind the scenes and at this rate he will soon become the Shonda Rhimes of Starz.
