It has just been reported that 50 Cent has signed a four-year deal between Starz and the artist’s G-Unit Film & Television imprint. As part of the deal, Fifty will be pushing out at least three series with the Lionsgate-owned network, on top of a list of off-screen commitments that spans from his role as executive producer — for both scripted and unscripted projects.
Speaking with Variety, 50 Cent added, “When I sat down with Chris [Albrecht, Starz CEO] and walked him through my plans for G-Unit Film & Television going forward, he let me know I was essentially requesting the biggest deal in premium cable history,” Jackson said. “I am excited to announce that we’ve made that partnership between myself, G-Unit Film & Television and Starz/Lionsgate and we will continue our proven track record of breaking records and delivering unique content for audiences around the world … Get The Strap.”
There has been no official figure amount stated by Starz on just how much 50 Cent will make in this deal, but Fifty did take to Instagram to confirm the details, all-while supporting the speculative amount of $150 million USD.
