Starz extended Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s exclusive premium overall deal to September 2018, during which the rapper/actor/producer will develop new projects for the network via his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc.

Starz and Jackson, an Executive Producer for the hit series “Power,” are also developing “Tomorrow, Today,” based on a screenplay penned by Jackson, on which he will serve as Executive Producer.

“Tomorrow, Today” is described as a superhero-themed series about a veteran from the south side of Chicago who, after being falsely imprisoned, becomes the personal experiment of a mad prison doctor trying to create the perfect man, and an unstoppable killing machine. Set free, but on the run, the veteran must reconcile with the world that has turned against him, and use his newfound abilities for good.





“I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with my Starz family; we have had great success together on ‘Power’ and I am excited to get going on all of our upcoming projects together. I knew Starz would be the perfect home for ‘Tomorrow, Today.’ This project is very personal to me…creating it, writing it, finding the best team for it and I will continue to be involved every step of the way.” said Jackson.

“We’re excited to develop this series with Curtis to showcase his producing skills with this unique storyline,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz.

Anthony Cipriano (“Bates Motel,” “12 and Holding”) and Dan Kay (“I.T.”) will executive produce “Tomorrow, Today” with Kirkland Morris serving as producer. Cipriano, Kay and Morris will also write for the series. Senior Vice President of Original Programming Ken Segna and Director of Original Programing Patrick McDonald will be the Starz executives in charge of “Tomorrow, Today.”

Jackson is represented by APA and attorneys Stephen Savva and Eric Feig. APA also represents: Cipriano, Kay and Morris.
