Variety reports the production deal for his new series comes on the heels of a new deal 50 inked with Starz that extends his existing overall deal with the company into September 2018, in order to develop new projects for the network with his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc.
Tomorrow, Today is described as a superhero drama, and the concept is based on a screenplay written by 50. The story’s narrative will reportedly follow a war veteran from Chicago’s south side who gets falsely imprisoned, then becomes the test dummy of a deranged prison doctor hell-bent on creating “the perfect man”—an unstoppable killing machine. The war vet eventually escapes and decides to use his superpowers for good in a world that mistreats him.
“I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with my Starz family, we have had great success together on ‘Power’ and I am excited to get going on all of our upcoming projects together,” 50 said in a statement. “I knew Starz would be the perfect home for ‘Tomorrow, Today.’ This project is very personal to me… creating it, writing it, finding the best team for it and I will continue to be involved every step of the way.”
No word yet on when the series will debut.
