Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson will shake things up at this year’s MIPTV when he world premieres Power, a new eight-episode Starz series he executive produced. The first-ever screening on the opening night of the annual TV convention in Cannes is sure to boast plenty of star power, thanks to the rapper.

Power stars Omari Hardwick (For Colored Girls) as a New York City nightclub owner who dabbles with the drug enterprise. The rapper himself is featured as a friend of the aspiring mogul and kingpin.

50 executive produces alongside Courtney Kemp Agboh (The Good Wife), Mark Canton (300), Randall Emmett(Lone Survivor) and David Knoller (Big Love).

MIPTV will take place in Cannes from Apr. 7 – Apr. 10.
