Starz today announced it has extended Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s exclusive premium overall deal, and is currently in development on a new superhero-themed series from the rapper in addition to his current Starz drama “Power.”

Jackson’s premium overall deal has been extended for another year into September 2018 to develop new projects for the network with G-Unit Film & Television, Inc. The company’s first project in development is “Tomorrow, Today,”

Based on a screenplay penned by Jackson, the series follows a veteran from the south side of Chicago who, after being falsely imprisoned, becomes the personal experiment of a mad prison doctor trying to create the perfect man – and an unstoppable killing machine. Set free, but on the run, the veteran must reconcile with the world that has turned against him, and use his newfound abilities for good.

“This project is very personal to me…creating it, writing it, finding the best team for it and I will continue to be involved every step of the way.” said Jackson, who will serve as executive producer on the series.

“Anthony Cipriano (“Bates Motel,” “12 and Holding”) and Dan Kay (“I.T.”) will executive produce “Tomorrow, Today” with Kirkland Morris serving as producer. Cipriano, Kay and Morris will also write for the series. Senior Vice President of Original Programming Ken Segna and Director of Original Programing Patrick McDonald will be the Starz executives in charge of “Tomorrow, Today.”
