A 50 Cent-produced show is coming to basic cable.
As we all know, 50 Cent is no mere rapper. He is a veteran businessman, producer, troll, and entrepreneur. So it continues: Deadline reports that 50 will co-executive producer and star in a new FOX sitcom called “My Friend 50.”
“My Friend 50” is a joint production by Will Packer’s Will Packer Productions, 50’s G-Unit Film & Television, and Universal Television. According to Deadline, the show, written by Ava Tramer, “follows Amanda Kramer, an unstable twenty-something who believes that joining 50 Cent’s entourage is the answer to all her problems. Her unlikely journey with 50 Cent’s crew takes the form of a bizarre documentary commissioned by the most unreliable narrator in history: Amanda.”
50 Cent already executive produces his Starz show “Power,” as well as the SundanceTV reality series “Dream School.” Now he adds a third. Will you be watching?
