Deadline is reporting that the Fox network is currently in negotiations with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, as well as producer Randall Emmett and Imagine TV(Brian Grazer, Ron Howard) for an animated comedy series based on Jackson’s childhood.
The project will center on a mischievous but well-meaning kid who frequently gets into trouble with his eccentric family and others in their ‘hood.
Carl Jones will assume writing duties.
Last we checked in on Fiddy, he was developing an hour-long drama series for the Starz network titled Power, which will follow on a New York nightclub owner who skirts the line between legitimacy and criminality.
He’s also teamed with Maria Menounos & Emmett/Furla to develop an unscripted series titled Teen Court.
