50 Cent really knows how to cash in.
Piggybacking on the success of his season three debut of the Starz hit series Power, the rapper signed a new deal with Crackle and Sony to executive produce two new series.
According to Billboard.com, 50 will team up with former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy and Hawaii Five-O writer Joe Haplin, who wrote and produced the series. The first series is titled The Oath and centers on a group of police officers who belong to a secret brotherhood within the police force.
In a statement 50 said, “I am very excited to be partnering with Sony Pictures Television Networks and Crackle. To be able to bring this story to life is something I’m looking forward to and Joe Haplin’s personal experience will make this unlike anything that’s been seen before.”
The second series is unofficially titled RPM and has an intriguing plot twist surrounding a car salesman who falls into bad company after having financial troubles. The one-hour original series will be written by Leo Sardarian.
Tyler Miller is the type of writer that prefers the typewriter.
