July 4th is a great time of year to celebrate the birth of our great nation, appreciate Independence, democracy and our troops whilst filling our stomachs with barbecued goodies and feasting our eyes on fireworks displays. Or we can stay inside and watch non-stop The Walking Dead episodes back to back to back!
Starz doesn't usually waste much time when it comes to renewals. They've actually been known to renew some of their series even before the first season debuts. So it's not entirely surprising that they would be quick to give the green light for a second season on Power.
Starz is giving us an early (and free) look at the first episode of Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson's new drama Power. The video above shows the (mostly) full first episode, edited slightly for content. This episode has arrived online a week ahead of the planned premiere, as Power is poised to take over the Saturday at 9:00 p.m. timeslot now that Da Vinci's Demons has wrapped up for the season.
Starz is taking a break from period dramas and adventure shows like Black Sails and Da Vinci's Demons to present Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's promising new drama Power. The 8-episode first season gets off to a solid start, introducing us to an up-and-coming nightclub owner who's using his hot new establishment as a front to launder money brought in by his lucrative and more established drug network.
We’ve known for a while that Power will focus on a notorious drug runner named James “Ghost” St. Patrick. St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) recently fulfilled his life-long dream of opening a brand new nightlife hot spot, and a lot of the new trailer is made up of artsy shots of people dancing, drinking and hanging out in the glitzy new club.
With its ever-growing expansion into original programming, Starz has most recently taken viewers to renaissance Italy with Da Vinci’s Demons and the high seas with Black Sails, and they’ll soon bring high-stakes drama to New York City night life with Power, which boasts rap superstar Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson as an executive producer. How soon, you ask? The network announced Power’s eight-episode season will debut on Saturday, June 7...
Starz is quickly becoming a great premium cable destination for adventure, with Da Vinci's Demons and Black Sails among their current series, and time travel period drama Outlander on deck to premiere this Summer. They also have 50 Cent's new drama Power lined up to premiere, giving subscribers much to anticipate as the warmer months approach. Starz teased all of the above in their latest preview, offering a glimpse of what 2014 is offering subscribers.
Starz has been busy rolling out a new original lineup in the New Year. Moving forward into 2014, the premium cable network also has Outlander and Power on the docket. On Tuesday, the network released the first full trailer for the latter. It’s a doozy, filled with club hopping and a few powerful figures working within the New York nightlife scene.
Among the new series headed to Starz at some point this year is Power, a drama that's created by Courtney Kemp Agboh and executive produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. Starz released a very brief teaser for the series today, which pops the champagne and fires a gun in anticipation of this new drama.
Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has been branching out beyond music for a while now, both as an actor and a producer. Among ups upcoming onscreen credits is Gil Medina's Vengeance and offscreen, he's listed as a producer for Scott Walker's upcoming thriller The Frozen Ground. For the small screen, his work is headed to Starz where he'll executive produce a recently greenlit series called Power.
