50 Cent is executive producing a black superhero animated TV show entitled Trill League, created in partnership with Lionsgate and Quibi. An adaptation of Anthony Piper’s indie graphic novel of the same name, Jameel Saleem (South Park) and Piper will serve as co-creators and writers of the series along with Jermaine Johnson as an additional executive producer.

“I am excited to bring G-Unit Film & Television to an innovative platform like Quibi with my partners at Lionsgate and 3 Arts,” Jackson said in a statement. “Anthony Piper and Jameel Saleem have created a world we haven’t seen before in Trill League, looking forward to sharing it soon.” Piper adds, “As an artist and writer, I couldn’t be more excited to fulfill this lifelong dream of creating a world with voices which reflected the one I came from. Working alongside my talented co-writer Jameel, as well as all of the partners involved (G-Unit, Lionsgate, Quibi, 3Arts), this has been one of the dopest endeavors of my creative career.”

The graphic novel parodies characters from DC Comics and was launched in 2015 with a Kickstarter campaign. The synopsis provided by the producers read:

“In an era of social injustice and internet trolls, a league of black superheroes, Trill League is tasked with saving the world from monsters, super villains and haters of all kinds. Get ready for this remixed rendition of your favorite superheroes as the series satirizes modern American society.”

Casting details and further information remain under wraps. Seeing as Quibi isn’t scheduled to launch until April 2020, stay tuned for a trailer and premiere date.
