Under the deal, 50 Cent will create scripted dramas, live-action comedies, and animated series engineered through G-Unit Film & Television.
Furthermore, projects created as part of the agreement will be produced by Fox Entertainment Studios, in partnership with G-Unit Film & Television, and owned by Fox Entertainment, per Variety.
“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 Cent, according to the outlet.
“Whether it’s music, film or television, Curtis [50 Cent] always delivers premium entertainment that captivates millions of fans across the globe,” said Michael Thorn, Fox Entertainment’s president in a statement. “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.”
50 Cent joins a growing list of filmmakers, including Rodney Rothman, Adam Rosenberg, Carol Mendelsohn, and Julie Weitz, who are celebrating a new deal with the broadcast television network.
