Towards the the end of last year we revealed 50 Cent was working a on a new pilot for STARZ called Power. Since then; there’s been a 15 second trailer floating around with 50 Cent’s Disco Inferno playing in the background, and ends with the word POWER being displayed.
It wasn’t much to go by but now that’s changed last week after STARZ Friday night line ups were complete, we finally saw an official trailer of what 50 Cent has been cooking up with the STARZ network.
“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.
Judging from the trailer it looks legit, 50 will don the executive producer badge, take on a role in front of the camera, and he will also provide original music for the new STARZ drama.
As you can see in the trailer, Fif will also be appearing in the show.
