  50 Cent Flexing His “Power”    Rapper turned actor/producer 50 Cent’s character may have died on his hit show “Power”, but the star behind ‘Kanan’ will live on over at the network that houses the drama.   The STARZ Network has signed Fifty up to a brand new, four-year deal.   According to Variety, “Under the agreement, Jackson will continue to develop new scripted and unscripted projects exclusively for the premium service through his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc. banner.”  The entertainment magazine says Fifty’s current hit is included in the deal and that the “agreement provides Jackson and G-Unit access to the full breadth of platforms operated by Starz and its corporate parent Lionsgate. It also gives Jackson input into the merchandising and licensing of brands and content developed by G-Unit.”  Fifty is working on two other new STARZ projects including”Black Mafia Family” which takes a look at the drug industry’s impact on the music industry.

Wu-Tang Clan is Ready to “Bring the Ruckus” to HULU  The NYC rappers changed the world of hip-hop and now they’re ready to “Triumph” over streaming TV series.  According to entertainment site Shadow and Act, Hulu has put in an order for a scripted drama based on the real-life drama of Wu-Tang Clan.  The project is titled “Wu-Tang: An America Saga” will be a 10-episode stream.  Wu-Tang members Method Man, Ghostface Killa, GZA Inspectah Deck, and Masta Killa are all onboard as consulting producers.  Shadow and Act says, “The official description: Set in early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.”  No details on when shooting begins or how long before the series is ready to drop on the streaming service.

“True Detective” Gives Fans First Look at Mahershala Ali in Action Whether he’s the villainous ‘Cotton Mouth’ crimelord terrorizing the streets of Harlem in “Marvel’s Luke Cage” or as Juan in the Oscar-winning “Moonlight”, Mahershala Ali always delivers on the role.  That’s got to be exactly what HBO execs are hoping as Ali stars in Season 3 of the crime drama anthology series True Detective.  Ali portrays Arkansas detective Wayne Hays who tries to unravel a murder mystery in the Ozarks.  HBO has finally released a premiere for the return of the popular series—January 13.  To accompany the news of the shows third season premiere, HBO also released a few new photos of Ali on set.
