Fox is Considering Making an Animated Comedy Based on 50 Cent’s Childhood


Rapper-actor Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is in negotiations to make an animated comedy for Fox, Deadline reports. The untitled series is loosely based on 50 Cent’s childhood as “a mischievous but well-meaning boy who often tangles with his eccentric family and neighborhood.” Carl Jones (The Boondocks) is writing, and the project is expected to receive a pilot or pilot presentation (a.k.a. short pilot) order from Fox. This is the first project based on 50 Cent’s life since the 2005 movie Get Rich or Die Tryin’, which couldn’t be further away from an animated comedy. It hasn’t been announced yet whether 50 Cent will voice the main character in his cartoon or not. Fox can always just have Seth MacFarlane do it.
