50 Cent has found a new home following his departure from Starz.
50, real name Curtis Jackson, has inked a non-exclusive multi-project broadcast direct deal with Fox Entertainment. Jackson’s production company G-Unit Film & Television will create scripted dramas, live-action comedies and animated series for Fox.
Michael Thorn, President of Scripted Programming at Fox Entertainment, released a statement on the deal:
Whether it’s music, film or television, Curtis always delivers premium entertainment that captivates millions of fans across the globe. He is the rare multi-hyphenate with a deft hand at storytelling, no matter the format or medium, and we’re looking forward to developing new and exciting series for FOX with him and his team
The Fox deal comes after Jackson parted ways with Starz last September, though he will remain an executive producer for the network’s hit series Power and BMF. His production company will also remain in development on the scripted series Fightland and Queen Nzinga at Starz.
