New York rapper 50 Cent is adding some serious star power to a new TV series. The hip-hop veteran has hired actress Joy Bryant to grace the screen in a new family drama show.

Curtis Jackson went to Instagram this week to announce a reunion with his former Get Rich or Die Tryin’ film co-star.

Earlier in the week, 50 announced actor Nicholas Pinnock would star in the untitled project.

According to reports, 50’s new TV pilot is centered on a legal and family theme.

Written by Steinberg and directed by George Tillman Jr., the fictional project is a serialized legal and family drama that centers on Aaron (Pinnock), a prisoner who becomes a lawyer, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves and reclaim the life that was stolen from him. The show also will, through the window of his ferocious struggle and his complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden, Kate (Varma), examine the flaws and challenges in our penal and legal systems.
