From the press release:

Power is the first-ever television show to premiere on Twitter using the service’s new in-line video feature that enables one-touch playback.

Approximately 79 million multichannel video households will have access to the sampling opportunities through select cable, satellite and telco affiliates in the United States.

The first episode of Power will also be available at, and online through select Starz cable, satellite, telco, and online distributors’ websites, including the Starz Power Twitter page at, Starz Power MySpace page, the Starz YouTube page at, Starz Power Facebook page at, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Sony Entertainment Network and CinemaNow.

The series premiere of Power will also be available for sampling through the free Starz Play app for all users in the United States.

Executive produced by Curtis 50 CentJacksonPower is a crime drama set in two different worlds – the glamorous New York club scene and the brutal drug trade.

James “Ghost” St. Patrick has it all: a beautiful wife, a gorgeous Manhattan penthouse, and the hottest, up-and-coming new nightclub in New York. His club, Truth, caters to the elite: the famous and infamous boldface names that run the city that never sleeps. As its success grows, so do Ghost’s plans to build an empire. However, Truth hides an ugly reality. It’s a front for Ghost’s criminal underworld; a lucrative drug network, serving only the wealthy and powerful. As Ghost is seduced by the prospect of a legitimate life, everything precious to him becomes unknowingly threatened. Once you’re in, can you ever get out?

The cast is led by Omari Hardwick who is joined by Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton and Joseph Sikora. Hardwick stars as ‘James “Ghost” St. Patrick’; Loren plays ‘Angela Valdes’, an old flame of James’s who unexpectedly reenters his life; Naughton will play ‘Tasha St. Patrick’, wife, confidant and willing accomplice to James and Sikora plays ‘Tommy Egan’, childhood best friend and business partner to “Ghost.”

Power will also feature Andy Bean as ‘Greg’, Sinqua Walls as ‘Shawn’, Adam Huss as ‘Kantos’, Greg Serano as ‘Medina’, Lucy Walters as ‘Holly’, Victor Garber as ‘Simon Stern,’ Sonya Walger as ‘Madeline Stern,’ Kathrine Narducci as ‘Lavaro’, Luis Antonio Ramos as ‘Ruiz’, La La Anthony as ‘LaKeisha’, Diane Neal as ‘Cynthia’, J.R. Ramirez as ‘Julio’, Debbi Morgan as ‘Estelle’, Shane Johnson as ‘Saxe’, Enrique Murciano as ‘Lobos’, Vinicius Machado as ‘Nomar’, Dominic Colon as ‘Anibal’, J.P. Serret as ‘Sabueso’ and Audrey Esparza as ‘Liliana’.

The series is created by Courtney Kemp Agboh, who will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and David Knoller also serve as executive producers. The series is being produced in association with CBS Television Studios.

Power premieres on Saturday, June 7th at 9pmET/PT on Starz with an eight hour-long episode first season.

But you don’t have to wait a week. You can watch the season premiere right now, embedded below:

This shit like that


I do not like Tasha as St. Patrick’s wife she has a ghetto attitude. She needs more acting lessons. She doesn’t even look like his taste. They look like to individuals from different worlds. She tries, but not believable for me. I’m ok with the other actors. I think they could’ve gave Lala a better role looking like a want to be it’s not her style.

ginger ryr

I love the show and actors, especially Omari ; omg 50cents is playing an unassuming sinister character. Cant wait until Episode 2. I am sure it will be intriguing. Better than the Sopranos.

There seems to be as much interest in this show's music as there is in the plot. That's rather telling.


Sat the 3rd.


Did they give a new episode of power this past sat?


Dis anybody know the name of that song at the end of episode 3? The guy was singing "i can't be found, I can't be found" in an British accent almost.


What's the name of the song playing in the background when Kantos interrupts James and Tasha while they're talking in his office at the club (Season 1; Episode 3)? Some of the lyrics are "but I just might tip her throw some hundreds in her face, tell her this is for the stage, baby, by the way, I'm really feeling your frame." The scene is immediately before James leaves the club to visit Tommy at a warehouse where he just tortured the attempted hijacker. Thanks!

Dave's Deluxe

It's for kids, but not for kids.

Marci CPR

Just finished watching "Power!" on my kindle." CURTIS US CANCERS THINK ALIKE!" Your show should be a hit! I must say it is interesting, BUT CHILDREN SHOULD NOT SEE. The children of today would definitely get the wrong idea and try to make money this way to come up and that is not the way. Otherwise, this may just be another spin-off from the "WIRE!" Just not so intense(at least that is what I see from the first Season Premier), but I could be wrong! Will see Saturday at 9pm on Starz! Send another after Saturday on what I think! Smile


I'm definitely feeling this show. It's sexy, exciting and gangsta. 50 you really did the damn thang. Big ups to Starz for putting this one out there.

What was the name of the very first song played in the show not the theme song. The song that was playing when they were on there way to the club.

Mookie Goldstein

I too wanna know the name of that slow song playing in the limo when that female does her thing. I know the lyrics are "Im Good…so good" Help a brother out


Dope. Good job 50.


Watched it today. I will give it a chance. I really liked the music. Does anyone know the name and artist of the song that was playing in the car when Naturi "did her show?". I loved it! I cant seem to find it anywhere. If you know, please tell me:). Thanks!


Man ya'll are a sad lot. lol.

It was a good show. A VERY good show. Best of the ones Starz has produced so far. Looks like something that HBO would have produced. Has The Wire type potential if it holds up on the writing front.

Naturi needs a lot of acting help. But she's forgiven. For now. As far as seen it before…well yeah…but it doesn't mean I don't want to see it again. There are a lot of layers to Ghost. I like that. His partner is a little too predictable, bordering on caricature, but not enough to NOT make me like him.

There's a lot going on, but it's layered and nuanced so I'm digging it.

As far as inconsistencies. No there aren't any. Ghost is a middle manager. This means you're not ever likely to see him handle any drugs or anything like that. But from time to time he will have to roll his sleeves up to handle an employee who gets out of line.

He shouldn't be carrying a gun. I think he knows that. But the hit has him shook – and perhaps off his game a bit. It'll def be interesting to see how it all plays out.

Who was going to handle their problem? 200k was lost. That much money the boss gets involved. I like the show. A lot. If the writing holds up it should be a good one.


"Tell me I'm beautiful", "You know you are", Really??? Naturi is definitely the wrong choice for this role.

Adam Scott Thompson

I don't know if it's got legs but it's already exceeded my expectations (sorry, Fiddy). We'll just have to wait and see where all this is going.

Anybody else get a "New York Undercover 2K14" vibe from this pilot?


Actors are solid but the writing… Very predictable. Frankly, it was rather boring. A lot of holes and inconsistencies in the story as well. One minute Ghost is acting like a high roller big boss, the next minute a low level junior manager with a two person crew. Also, since when did anybody in history ever think club owners had "clean" hands? If this show is to survive, the writing has got to improve 1000%.


Just finished. Something seems off about it.

Oh if you want to see Naturi's breasts, you get a good show. She has nice ones.

But yeah, I dunno what to think of the show.

The narrative itself is not my cup of tea. Drugs. Guns. Clubs. Crime. Blah.

But I guess Omari's character will get redemption.

Oh and for y'all who love black love… sorry.


SICK! The look of the show is excellent. Fans of Omari and Naturi…so they got me!

Hmm I dunno...

First lines of dialogue:

"Tell me I'm beatiful."
"You know are."

I'm only watching for Omari but I dunno about this.
