50 Cent Developing Starz Drama

Rapper 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson attends the 40th American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on November 18, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

50 Cent will executive produce an hour-long drama for Starz called Power, Variety reports. The show, still in development, is about a nightclub owner who "skirts the line between legitimacy and criminality," because you can't have a cable drama without involving some form of lawlessness. Maybe he can be a moody, intriguing antihero whose family doesn't know the depths of his darkness! We need some more of those guys on TV.
