More and more TV shows each year make it impossible to keep up with everything, even as choice Sunday real estate goes to conversation-starters like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Well, get ready to not talk about the big Starz shows on Monday, now that the cable outlet will switch to Sunday premieres, from its usual Saturday.
TV viewers and Black Sails fans, you finally have something in common. Starz will join the ranks of TV channels offering their services to stream independent of any cable package, even tossing in the Outlander Season 2 premiere as an incentive.
We haven't made very much of Starz's recently-premiered and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson-produced gangster drama 'Power,' but as we've come to expect from the cable network, Starz isn't waiting very long to double down. Following a modest premiere, Starz has officially greenlit 'Power' for a second season to air in 2015, and with an expanded order at that.
The recent cancellation of Starz's 'Magic City' and rumors swirling about 'The White Queen''s impending demise may put the premium cable network in something of a bind, but rapper 50 Cent will soon flex his 'Power' behind the camera. The network's upcoming Curtis Jackson-produced drama has officially cast its leading man in 'Kick-Ass' star Omari Hardwick, putting to rest talk that 50 himself might take the role.
Months ago we heard that Starz and rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson had begun development of vague new criminal drama 'Power,' said to follow a “Gotham nightclub owner who skirts the line between legitimacy and criminality.” Starz has now officially picked up the drama to series with Jackson producing, but what new details have been revealed? And will 50 Cent end up starring in the show?
Starz is certainly looking to pick up new dramas, what with the earlier cancellation of 'Boss,' and the upcoming final run of 'Spartacus: War of the Damned,' even 'Magic City' having a somewhat tepid reception. For its latest effort Starz has partnered with rapper and occasional actor 50 Cent for 'Power,' which might have one of the vaguest titles and premises we've ever heard. Get the big (little) scoop inside!
