50 Cent Outlines New Broadcast Deal With Fox
50 Cent’s making major plays in television. Though he’s hinted at a return to music since the beginning of the year, he recently announced a deal with Fox that would presumably eat up much of his time. Perhaps, he’ll still be working on new music during this time. However, over the years, he’s transformed into one of the biggest moguls in television. Between Power and BMF alone, Fif’s resume is quite extensive. The deal with Fox will open the gates for even more content from G-Unit Film and Television.
The move to Fox comes after his departure from Starz, the home to his most successful shows to date. The non-exclusive agreement will find Fif delivering scripted dramas, live action comedies, and animated series to Fox. “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,” Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn said. Fif will undoubtedly come through with some excellent programming for Fox moving forward.
50 Cent Shares Details Surrounding Fox Deal
During his recent interview with Ari Melber on The Beat, Fif explained that his upcoming deal with Fox benefits him far more than his efforts with Starz. The non-exclusive aspect of the contract allows Fif to work with anyone. “This deal allows me to work with everyone,” he said, in contrast to his deal with Starz. Though he currently has 24 shows across 10 different networks, he explained that Fox will be his primary focus moving forward. “I’ll show them things first,” he added.
We’re excited to see what Fif has in store in the coming future. Currently, he’s plotting on the upcoming season of Power Book II: Ghost, which is set to debut next month. However, the success of BMF has inspired him to approach the series similarly to Power. He recently revealed that he’ll be delivering three different spin-offs in the BMF universe, though he hasn’t confirmed when we’ll see those debut.
