Now heading into the TV drama realm is none other than revered rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who executive produces the upcoming Starz Entertainment series “Power” from writer/creator Courtney Kemp Agboh (“The Good Wife”).
“Power,” starring Omari Hardwick, Lela Loren and Naturi Naughton, chronicles the life of a wealthy nightclub owner (Hardwick) leading a double life as a drug kingpin, whose growing success in his legitimate business leads to some trouble in his illegal activities.
The trailer features Hardwick’s character as he struggles to make a clean life for himself, only to have his wife, his partner and his entire drug-dealing business keep him from reaching that dream. Courtney Kemp Agboh and the show’s stars all comment in the BTS video on the show’s many themes, including power and the high cost of obtaining it.
“Power” premieres June 7th on Starz. Check out the trailer and behind-the-scenes video below:
