[UPDATE: Starz network is officially in business with 50 Cent.]

50 Cent, the executive producer of the Starz-television series "Power," will see his show air on T.V. at the beginning of the 2014.

It's been reported by THR that Starz ordered the first episodes of the drama on Friday.

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht commented on the new addition to their premium cable network, "We are thrilled to add 'Power' to our growing original programming lineup for 2014. Curtis has a unique and specific vision for the series, lending it an authenticity and voice rarely seen. Courtney has created a rich world and characters not often explored in contemporary drama. There is a rawness and soul to the character of Ghost as he struggles to live between these two worlds that we believe will leave an indelible mark on the audience and stay with them after the credits roll."

Fif also released a statement on the new venture, "This is a passion project for me, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have found a home with Starz. I look forward to working with this incredibly talented team on making 'Power' a hit show."
