It's another win for the head of G-Unit Film & Television.

(AllHipHop News) Curtis **"**50 Cent" Jackson's foothold in the television space seems to be secure. The entertainment mogul has produced several series, including Dream School for SundanceTV, 50 Central for BET, and his breakout hit Power for Starz.

According to Deadline, 50 Cent's G-Unit Film & Television and the Starz network extended their overall deal until 2019. The partnership is looking to develop Black Mafia Family, Tomorrow, Today, and a possible third project.

“I have a personal connection to each project I bring to them,” stated Jackson. “I’m able to deliver shows that have unique stories that can be told on premium cable television.”

In addition, 50 has the new scripted show The Oath set to premiere on Crackle. The gang-themed program will be available for streaming on the platform beginning March 8.

left out the part where the deal is an 8 figure deal meaning it's for no less than $10 million...hate this guy all you want but you can't knock his ability to be successful. Everyone laughed about the whole bankruptcy thing saying he's broke but obviously they didn't know the difference between Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy...
