Mikey Fresh: On the other side, 50 cent is also developing new shows for The Starz network. He just signed a new two year deal to introducing new programs for 2015-2017.

Deadline Reports:

Production on the 10-episode third season of New York-based Power began this month at the series’ home base at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn. Creator, executive producer and showrunner Courtney Kemp Agboh is back for Season 3 alongside Jackson and fellow EPs Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and Gary Lennon.

“Curtis is a wonderful hands-on producer and actor on Power and we look forward to expanding his roles behind-the-camera with Starz over the next two years,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz.

Power is a valuable property for Starz, which owns all global distribution and home entertainment rights to the series, sold in more than 175 countries/territories worldwide.
