Starz Original Series Power

In June Starz green-lighted new drama series from executive producer Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent, and creator Courtney Kemp Agboh.

Earlier today 50 Cent posted the first artwork from the upcoming series via his instagram, I’m sure an official trailer is not too far behind.

About Power

Power” tells the story of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a wealthy New York City nightclub owner who caters to the city’s elite.  He wants to build an empire, turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there’s just one problem: Ghost is living a double life.  When he is not in the club, he is the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York for a very high-level clientele. His marriage, family and business all become unknowingly threatened as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he wants to be most of all.

Omari Hardwick

Omari Hardwick (photo above) will play James “Ghost” St. Patrick, who’s most notable roles were in “Sparkle,” “For Colored Girls” and “The A-Team.”

Starz managing director, Carmi Zlotnik said:

“Omari is an actor of incredible range and versatility.”

“When we met Omari, we knew he had all the tools needed to play such a complicated and complex character. We look forward to him bringing Ghost to life on the screen.

I’m definitely looking forward to what 50 Cent and Courtney Kemp Agboh have in store.

    This show's got a ways to go before it can compete with HBO shows, but it's got a pretty good start so far. I like that a show set in the criminal world has such a smart, strong female character in Tasha - she's smart, crafty, and able to keep her knowledge under the radar. 


    On a side note I loved that they used "Ain't No Party" by Rootbeer during Ruiz's party at the strip club. I'm a huge fan of Pigeon John and Flynn Adam and this side project collaboration is pretty sick too

    @sceneontvblog Comparing them to HBO is unfair, they are the best premium network on cable, and have been for almost 2 decades because they have the biggest budgets to to buy the best shows. But I digress, the show is a good look. 


    Hip Hop made this show happen but yet it's not marginalized as a black (sorry "urban") TV series, which is a good thing. It's already been green lighted for a second season so here's hoping the show goes all the way.


    Good start, finish strong.
