50 Cent Signs New Multimillion-Dollar Deal With STARZ
A source told TMZ that the deal, which runs through September of 2019, is set up for 3 projects in total, “Black Family Mafia,” “Tomorrow, Today” and a third series that will be announced later.
“Black Mafia Family” is reportedly inspired by the story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, which will serve as the intersection of the drug industry and the music industry, whereas the other upcoming series “Tomorrow, Today,” is being described as a super-hero vigilante story.
“This deal recognizes how Curtis’ abilities have gone beyond music and business to include acting and show creation,” noted Starz boss Chris Albrecht of working with 50. “We’re pleased to continue our relationship and bring new projects to his current and future fans.”
“I am extremely pleased to expand my partnership with Starz and Lionsgate,” 50 Cent said. “This investment in my television and film ventures through G-Unit Film & Television will launch a wide range of new original scripted and unscripted programming I’m looking forward to everyone seeing.”
