50 Cent is bringing variety to television. The creative producer-entrepreneur is developing an “innovative” variety series for the A&E Network.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fif’s show, tentatively titled 50 Cent Presents, will feature stand-up comics, reality experiments, dance performances, comedy sketches and celebrity guests.
50 Cent is planning to host and executive produced the program that’s being billed as a “showcase series that takes In Living Color a step further.”
“I grew up watching variety shows and am excited to put my own spin on the format,” said 50 in a press release. “I hope everyone is ready to bring their talent forward, I want to show the world the best of the best.”
A&E’s head of programming Elaine Fronton Bryant is ecstatic to work with 50 on his remix of the traditional variety series. “50 Cent is the perfect partner to refresh this classic format,” he said. “He is a true tastemaker across industries and we are excited to see his impressive showcase of talent.”
This news comes as 50 Cent continues to conquer the television industry with the hit Starz series Power, which begins its third season this summer.
Congrats to 50 Cent and we wish him the best of luck on his new television series.
