In less than a decade, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has transitioned from being a music superstar to becoming one of the fastest rising moguls in television. Within the last ten years, he's found success with shows like Power on Starz and For Life on ABC. More recently, he wrapped up the first season of Power Book II: Ghost and Power Book III: Raising Kanan. Not to mention, he's also hinted that Power Book IV: Force will premiere on Starz in the first quarter of 2022. In the midst of his Power universe expansion, Jackson has also announced the launch of his highly-anticipated series, BMF. Inspired by real-life events, the series will tell the story of Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory, Terry "Southwest T" Flenory and the Black Mafia Family.
Shortly before Power Book II: Raising Kanan premiered on Starz, Jackson shared a 30-second BMF teaser. The clip highlights Da'Vinchi and Demterious Fleonry Jr., who will fulfill the show's two leading roles. Along the way, the two actors move from the clubs to the streets of Detroit as they rise to fame.
In addition to BMF, Jackson has a number of other projects lined up. He has previously announced that he will be developing a new series called Power Book V: Influence starring Larenz Tate. He's also set to produce and star in the upcoming heist film, Den of Thieves II: Pantera. Not to mention, it appears that the star producer will finally be bringing his film, The Pursuit, to theaters in the coming months. Alongside Matt Johnson, Jackson first announced the film in 2011, but it was sidelined by a myriad of issues. Rounding out his slate of upcoming projects, Jackson is working as a writer and producer on the upcoming TV movie, Tomorrow, Today, which focuses on a veteran who obtains superpowers after being falsely imprisoned.
In the immediate future, Jackson will focus on his next two releases on Starz. Power Book II: Ghost is expected to return in November and BMF will debut on September 26.
