A screenplay written by 50 Cent is being turned into a TV series on Starz, with 50 acting as executive producer.

Anthony Cipriano, the creator of Bates Motel, and Dan Kay will join 50 as executive producers for the show, which follows a similar premise to Marvel's Luke Cage.

"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," 50 Cent said.

Tomorrow, Today will be 50´s second show with Starz and the production company will hope it can reach similar levels of success as Power, currently airing on Netflix, which saw its viewership grow 389% from the season one premiere to season three, according to a press release.

Meanwhile, Luke Cage debuts on Netflix on September 30.
