50 Cent teams up with Starz for ‘Power’-ful new drama
Ghost is the focus of Power, a new drama executive produced by Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson. Omari Hardwick (The A-Team) stars as Ghost, a wealthy NYC nightclub owner living a double life as one of the most lucrative drug dealers in the city. As the show begins, he’s trying to leave his life of crime behind to improve his business and the lives of his family. For some, great power comes with great responsibility. For James “Ghost” St. Patrick, power only brings problems.
A hour long drama series, the cast includes Naturi Naughton (The Client List), Joseph Sikora (True Detective), and Lela Loren (Snitch) with 50 Cent, La La Anthony, and Victor Garber all making cameo appearances throughout the eight-episode season. Courtney Kemp Agboh (The Good Wife) serves as showrunner with Mark Canton (300) and Randall Emmett (Lone Survivor)producing alongside 50 Cent.
Power premieres on Starz Saturday, June 7 at 9 p.m. ET.
