50 Cent Signs New Broadcast Deal With Fox Entertainment

Rapper and producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has entered into a non-exclusive, multi-project broadcast direct deal with Fox Entertainment through his production company G-Unit Film & Television. The new deal will allow the rapper and his company to develop scripted dramas, live-action comedies and animated series that Fox will own. The deal was announced by Fox Entertainment president of scripted programming Michael Thorn.

The move comes on the heels of a number of other prominent filmmakers signing deals with Fox, including Rodney Rothman (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), Adam Rosenberg and Carol Mendelsohn (CSI and its numerous counterparts). Last year, the company also signed a broadcast direct deal with writer/producer/director McG (Supernatural, Lethal Weapon, We Are Marshall).

Since launching his filmed entertainment company G-Unit Film & Television in 2005, Jackson has developed several projects, most recently the Starz series Power. It features Jackson as a co-star, executive producer and director and its spinoffs include Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan and Power Book IV: Force.

In addition to the Starz series, G-Unit Film & Television has produced ABC’s For Life and the Black Mafia Family docuseries and is currently developing Fightland and Queen Nzinga at the cable network. The company is also delving into film with a three-picture deal with Eli Roth and 3BlackDot.

The multi-hyphenate musician and TV showrunner is a true powerhouse of a producer, and his new deal with Fox shows how much the network values him as a content creator. Whether it’s music, film or television, he always delivers premium entertainment that captivates millions of fans around the world.
