50 Cent Launches New Company After Leaving Starz
50 Cent announced the end of his partnership with Starz. Under Starz, he produced shows like “Power,” “Power Book II: Ghost,” “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” “Power Book IV: Force,” and “BMF.” Now that the deal is over 50 posted on Instagram, “09-17-22 official day of really owning my content & deciding where and how I do it moving forward!!!” 50 then announced that his company, G-Unit Film and Television, is set to produce and distribute 25 television shows that have been sold to ten different networks. Last year, Courtney Kemp, the creator of Power, opted not to renew her deal with Lionsgate. She instead took a deal over at Netflix. 50 Cent has now applied for a new trademark for a company called NYC Vibe, LLC. NYC Vibe will allow 50 to produce and distribute television shows, documentaries, and movies; organize competitive sports and athletic events; offer online gaming services in the nature of casino gambling, card games, computer game tournaments and augmented reality games; and open some bars and restaurants. According to reps for 50 Cent, G-Unit Film and Television will entertain offers from streamers and studios to be home for that company.
