Now that Being Mary Jane is on hiatus until it returns for its second season on BET, lead male Omari Hardwick is on to new work. He played cheating married man Andre Daniels on the show, and at the season’s end, it was unsure if he would be a main character next season.
However, he and 50 Cent have teamed up for an eight-episode summer series on Starz. On the show, Hardwick plays James “Ghost” St. Patrick, who is the owner of a popular night club in NYC called “Truth.” However, it’s just a front to launder the money he makes running one of the most lucrative drug dealing businesses in the city. The show follows the struggles he faces as he attempts to keep his double life going.
Naturi Naughton of girl group 3LW plays his wife Tasha, Joseph Sikora will play Tommy Egan, childhood best friend and business partner to Ghost and Lela Loren plays Angela Valdes, an old flame of Ghost who unexpectedly reenters his life.
50 Cent is the executive producer, and will make a few appearances as a fellow criminal.
