Starz feeling the ‘Power’

New drama has rapper 50 Cent on board as exec producer

Starz is developing “Power,” an hourlong drama with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson attached to exec produce.

From CBS TV Studios, project centers on a Gotham nightclub owner who skirts the line between legitimacy and criminality. “300’s” Mark Canton and “End of Watch’s” Randall Emmett will exec produce the drama in addition to Jackson. Trio have worked together on feature films including “Freelancers” and next year’s “The Tomb.”

“The Good Wife” scribe and producer Courtney Kemp Agboh will pen “Power” in addition to serving as exec producer.

Jackson and Agboh are repped by CAA.

Starz is looking to add to its drama lineup, having recently canceled Kelsey Grammer starrer “Boss.” Pay cabler is readying new seasons of “Spartacus” and “Magic City” and has Michael Bay-produced “Black Sails” on tap.
