LOS ANGELES, CALIFRONIA — Rapper turned actor and businessman Curtis Jackson, also known by his stage name 50 Cent and Fox have entered into a non-exclusive broadcast direct deal to develop scripted dramas, live-action comedies and animated series through his production company G-Unit Film & Television, Michael Thorn, Fox Entertainment’s president of scripted programming announced.

Projects created as part of 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 Thorn. “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 Jackson.

The multi-platinum selling rapper exited his deal with Starz last September, but several of his franchises remain on the network including Black Mafia Family (which recently scored a season 3 renewal) and multiple spinoffs within the Power universe: Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, and Power Book IV: Force. G-Unit Film & Television also produced the ABC series, For Life.

G-Unit is also in development on the scripted series Fightland and Queen Nzinga at Starz. Recently released from G-Unit Film & Television is Hip Hop Homicides at WeTV. Jackson is also expanding into the podcast space through his new G-Unit Audio banner with the debut of Surviving El Chapo: The Twins Who Brought Down a Drug Lord in partnership with iHeart Media and Lionsgate Sound.  The company is also building out its feature slate, starting with a three picture horror deal as a collaboration with horror phenom Eli Roth and 3BlackDot.

Jackson is represented by APA, AKR PR, and attorney Stephen Savva.
