Drake & Future The Prince are expanding their side ventures by bringing a new series to the highly anticipated mobile platform Quibi which is launching April 6.
Drake and his co-manager and business partner, Adel “Future” Nur will executive produce a new series on Quibi titled 48 Laws of Power. It is based on Robert Greene’s New York Times best-selling book of the same name and will “detail the nature of power and how one can secure and maintain it.”
Drake, Nur, Jason Shirer of Drake’s Dremcrew production company, Zack Hayden of Anonymous Content, and 48 Laws of Power author Robert Greene will also serve as the show’s executive producers. Apart from this, Drizzy will also direct an episode.
“When Drake and I sat down with Robert Greene, it was incredibly inspiring. The laws allow for a wide range of dynamic storytelling, and Quibi allows us to tell these stories in bite-sized chapters similar to the book,” Future told Billboard. “I have always thought that The 48 Laws of Power would be a perfect fit for a series, bringing to life the timeless Machiavellian game of power as portrayed in the book,” Greene says. “But it was not until Drake and Future with Anonymous Content approached me with their unique cinematic approach to the laws that I knew I could join forces with them and go all in for a filmed interpretation of my work.”
Drake also executive-produces the hit British crime drama series Top Boy, which was recently renewed for a second season on Netflix on popular demand.
Quibi is a short-form video mobile entertainment platform launching next month, offering a 90-day free trial starting April 6th.
