50 Cent has made his next move in TV and film. The rapper turned mogul has announced a broadcast deal with Fox for his G-Unit Film & Television company.
The deal between the two entities is a non-exclusive one to develop scripted dramas, live-action comedies and animated series through his production company, G-Unit Film & Television. Projects created/greenlit under the agreement will be owned by Fox Entertainment and produced by its in-house unit, Fox Entertainment Studios, in collaboration with G-Unit Film & Television.
“Whether it’s music, film or television, Curtis always delivers premium entertainment that captivates millions of fans across the globe,” said Michael Thorn, Fox Entertainment’s president of scripted programming. “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.”
“I am excited to formalize a partnership with Michael Thorn and Fox that will allow G-Unit Film & Television to focus on putting multiple series on Fox, a perfect broadcast destination for G-Unit Film & Television content while our premium, streaming, scripted and non-scripted slates continue to grow in all directions,” said 50.
50 exited his overall deal with Starz last September but he continues to serve as the executive producer of the Power and BMF series. G-Unit is also developing the scripted series “Fightland” and “Queen Nzinga” at Starz.
