Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is moving forward with his upcoming Starz series “Black Mafia Family”.

Starz has given 50 Cent an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for the drama series BMF, highlighting the fifth scripted series the rapper and producer has in the works. The series will film in 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The upcoming Black Mafia Family series is an upcoming drug trafficking drama based on the true story of two brothers who rose from the streets of southwest Detroit in the 1980s to becoming one of the most powerful crime families in America. The show will focus on brothers Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, who took their vision beyond the drug trade and into the business of hip-hop. The series, according to Starz, will tell a story about love, family, and capitalism in America.

Randy Huggins from Power and Star will write the script and executive produce the series alongside 50 Cent and his G-Unit Film and TV production company.

“This is a project Curtis has always been incredibly passionate about and we are excited to have him as our partner in bringing it to life,” Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch said. “Black Mafia Family has all the hallmarks of a great drama, from the larger-than-life Flenory brothers to the deadly, high-stakes world they inhabited. This series is going to be an incredible ride for audiences around the world.”

Black Mafia Family is 50 Cent’s fourth new series at Starz following the premium network’s ending of their hit series Power. 50 Cent, who also executive producers ABC’s For Life, will also executive produce all four of Power spinoffs alongside showrunner Courtney A. Kemp.

“I told you Black Mafia Family was coming and it’s going to be the biggest show on television,” Jackson said. “Meech and Terry are legends and I am excited to bring their story to Starz.”

Russell Hornsby and Steve Harris were added to the series as regular cast additions. Hornsby will play Charles Flenory, the leader of the family. Harris plays Detective Bryant.
