50 Cent is reportedly developing a new comedy TV series based on the day-to-day of a member
of his crew. The veteran rapper (real name Curtis Jackson) is teaming with Will Packer to produce
the My Friend 50 comedy for Fox, in which he’s also expected to make occasional appearances as
a version of himself.
The single-camera series follows 20-something Amanda Kramer who “believes that joining 50 Cent’s
entourage is the answer to all her problems. The project was created by Packer’s Will Packer Productions,
Jackson’s G-Unit Film & Television and Universal Television.
Jackson has enjoyed small-screen success with the Power drama, which he executive produces and
co-stars in. The new deal falls outside a two-year deal Jackson signed in September with the premium
cable network Starz to develop new projects and continue his work on Power, which recently began
shooting a third season.
