Is Power on the way out? Recently, star and executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson posted some heated words against the TV show’s network, Starz, Deadline reports.
The drama follows James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), the owner of a New York City nightclub that also happens to be one of the largest drug distributors in the city. The cast also includes Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton, Joseph Sikora, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Lucy Walters, Andy Bean, David Fumero, Shane Johnson, and La La Anthony.
On Instagram, Jackson called out Starz for being unsupportive towards Power, which is currently their highest-rated TV series. In the post, Jackson threatened to leave Power. It’s unclear what this means for the future of the crime drama, but Starz has already renewed the show for a fifth season.
See Jackson’s post below:
What do you think? Do you watch Power? Would you still watch the series without “50 Cent”? Do you think Starz is holding the show back?
Note: In addition to his music and acting, Jackson’s apparently well known for his chinstrap beard. Here’s a related article to check out.
I JUST ADDED STARZ TO MY CABLE SO I CAN WATCH POWER. I WATCHED SEASON 1 THROUGH 4 IN FIVE DAYS. DON’T MESS WITH SUCCESS AND KEEP 50 CENT. HE IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE SHOW.I CAN’T WAIT FOR SEASON 5. LET’S GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD.
I think the show would succeed with or with out 50 cent. The show is great and should continue
I agree show should continue, every time I get interested in a series there is some drama on the back end and show stops and leaves its viewers hanging. Currently continue show without him. Omari Hardwick would be hard pressed to replace.
How about taking a risk and putting it on BounceTV? He would be changing the game for real and may even be able to partner with or buy the Network. Just a thought.
Yeah throw it off air bad rapper in this era doing first production in tv show it terrible. Same ballers on HBO cancelled both shows I hate it.
