50 Cent Sells TV Project to Comedy Central

50 Cent Sells TV Project to Comedy Central

As he did the last time he *leaked* (via his Instagram page) a project he had sold that hadn’t been officially announced yet, he deleted the post some time after he published it. But thankfully, several sites grabbed screen captures of it before it disappeared.

In short, as the above capture states, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has apparently just sold a TV show to Comedy Central, although he doesn’t share any specifics. So, like the last time, we’ll wait for the official announcement from Comedy Central – assuming one is indeed coming.

In the meantime, his new series on Starz, “Power,” which stars Omari Hardwick and Naturi Naughton, is doing well enough for the network, given that it was renewed for a second season after only a single episode.

Most recently, he teased a feature project on the Black Mafia Family, on his Instagram page – a project which was later made official with an announcement that Emmett/Furla/Oasis jumped on board to produce and finance the film.

You should recall 50 Cent’s 10-picture, $200 million agreement with George Furla’s Hedge Fund Film Partners via his Cheetah Vision Films production company, as well as Lionsgate and Grindstone Entertainment Group renewing their film slate deal with Emmet/Furla and Fiddy’s Cheetah Vision Films for an additional 10 films, expanding their overall relationship.

So take that HATERZ!
