Starz Debuts Trailer for 50 Cent's Nightclub Drama 'Power' (Video)
Starz has released the first trailer for its upcoming nightclub drama from executive producer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.
The eight-episode series revolves around James "Ghost" St. Patrick (The A-Team's Omari Hardwick), a wealthy New York City nightclub owner who caters to the city's elite. He wants to build an empire and turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there's just one problem: Ghost is living a double-life. When he's not at the club, he's the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York, catering to a very exclusive clientele. His marriage, family and business all become unknowingly threatened as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he wants to be most of all.
The Good Wife's Courtney Kemp Agboh created the drama and serves as showrunner on the CBS Television Studios series. Mark Canton (300) and Randall Emmett (End of Watch) will also executive produce the eight-episode drama alongside 50 Cent, who makes a cameo in the trailer.
Power debuts in the summer on Starz. Check out the trailer below.
