Artist and producer 50 Cent has signed a new four-year overall deal with Starz.
Under the agreement, 50 will continue to develop new scripted and unscripted projects exclusively for the premium service through his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc. banner.
The deal represents a significant increase to Starz’s investment in 50, executive producer of drama series “Power.”
It includes a three-series commitment, the addition of a dedicated development executive, and a discretionary fund for use in developing G-Unit projects.
Sources with knowledge of the agreement say, in full success and combination with 50’s current series and development, it could prove to be worth as much as 150 million dollars.
