G-Unit head 50 Cent is no longer just the “Power” guy at Starz after announcing a two-year overall deal to create new content for the premium network.
According to reports, Fif will develop shows and hold his position as a executive producer for Starz’s hit “Power” series.
Earlier this month, 50 posted a picture alongside the “Power” cast onto social media.
“Power” remained Starz’s most popular series after bringing in over 2 million viewers for its final show last month.
The drama, which stars Omari Hardwick as a New York City nightclub owner who doubles as a drug kingpin to an elite clientele, drew 2.39 million viewers in Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, which includes both same-night viewership (1.54 million) and time-shifted playback done over the next three days (850,000). This was up 51% vs. the show’s first-season finale last year (1.59 million) and broke the network’s “live plus-3” record set the previous week when “Power” averaged 2.29 million. (Variety)
Fif recently predicted how long his “Power” show would run.
“It’s the number one show on the network now – the second season [premiere] was the largest original series numbers they ever saw at Starz. They’re excited. Those are the kind of numbers that would have made [Diddy’s television network] Revolt a success. It would have did it. [Season three] is green lit. This will be going on for about probably seven seasons. Six or seven seasons. But, you know, they wait ’til after the first show has great numbers every season before they say the next one is green lit. But you know, the arc is written for five at this point.” (Hot 93.7)
