50 Cent's television empire continues to expand.
50 Cent has done it again. While the recent narrative tends to have centered around 50's transition into that old merciless penny-counting "Fofty," the mogul has been keeping busy behind the scenes. With "Power" heading into its final season, 50 has set his sights on the future, sharing a big announcement around his new series "For Life." Variety reports that 50's new series has officially been picked up by ABC, set for release in the 2019-2020 release period. The serialized series is set to follow the life of Isaac Wright, Jr., a prisoner-turned-lawyer determined to overturn his wrongful conviction.
The series has already lined a solid cast, including Nicholas Pinnock, Indira Varma, Joy Bryant, Glenn Fleshler, Dorian Missick, Tyla Harris, Mary Stuart Masterson, and Boris McGiver. While "For Life" is still a little while off, 50's excitement for the coming drama remains palpable. The rapper took to Instagram to stoke the hype fires, writing "this is must see Tv. Sometimes the only person who believes in you, is you."
He also took a moment to celebrate producer Alison Greenspan, who helped produce "For Life" alongside 50's G-Unit Film & Television. "Don’t go dragging your feet people," writes Fif, alongside a photo of Greenspan. "We got shit to do, she’s tuff don’t let her looks fool you.LOL." Congratulation to 50 for another series. Do you have any interest in catching "For Life" when it ultimately airs on ABC?
