Rapper 50 Cent producing new TV drama

50 Cent is producing a new drama TV series for Starz.

50 Cent is one of America’s greatest rags-to-riches stories. Not only is he a successful rapper, movie-maker and business man, 50 is getting ready to conquer television.

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is official producing Starz new TV drama titled Power. The show follows a wealthy NYC nightclub owner who is leading a double life as a drug kingpin.

50 says the new drama won’t stray far from the themes that played out in his 2005 feature film Get Rich or Die Tryin.

Production for the show is set for late 2013.
