Starz Renews Drama Series THR
A Starz drama series has received an order for another season. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that the pay-cable channel picked up a second season of "Power," ordering 10 episodes.
The show is from executive producer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, the report notes.
THR notes: "The series, which bowed Saturday, revolves around James 'Ghost' St. Patrick ('The A-Team's' Omari Hardwick), a wealthy New York City nightclub owner who caters to the city's elite. He wants to build an empire and turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there's just one problem: Ghost is living a double-life. When he's not at the club, he's the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York, catering to a very exclusive clientele. His marriage, family and business all become unknowingly threatened as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he wants to be most of all."
The series, from CBS Television Studios, was created by Courtney Kemp Agboh ("The Good Wife"), who also is the showrunner.
"Mark Canton ('300'), David Knoller and Randall Emmett ('End of Watch') executive produce alongside 50 Cent, who makes a cameo in the series. Starz picked up the drama straight to series last June. Production on season two will resume in September in and around New York as well as at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn," the report adds.
