“Black Mafia Family” will mark the latest Starz project from executive producer “Power”, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
Per Starz, the “Black Mafia Family” was inspired by the true story of two brothers who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s and gave birth to one of the most influential criminal families in the country. Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory’s charismatic leadership, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory’s business intelligence, and the vision of brotherhood partnerships outside the drug trade and into the world of hip-hop will make the brothers become icons at the global level. Their unwavering faith in family loyalty will form the basis of their partnership and the core of their eventual alienation. This is a story of love, family and capitalism in pursuit of the American dream.
“I said the ‘Black Mafia Family’ would come, and that would be the biggest television program,” Jackson said in a statement. “Meech and Terry are legends and I’m happy to bring their story to Starz.”
Jackson will executive produce the series with Randy Huggins (“Power”), which will also function as a writer. The series will be produced through the Jackson Film and Television G-Unit in collaboration with Starz and Lionsgate Television. Terri Kopp and Anthony Wilson also acted as executive producers in this series. Kathryn Tyus-Adair is a Starz executive who oversees the “Black Mafia Family” on behalf of Starz.
This series will mark the latest series from the Starz Jackson series. Jackson, who signed A profitable four-year and multi-series deal with Starz in 2018, executives produced and starred in the popular “Power”, which aired its final series in February. Jackson is also working on four “Power” spinoffs.
“This is a project that Curtis has always been very interested in and we are very pleased to make it our partner in making it happen,” Starz president and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch said in a statement. “The ‘Black Mafia Family’ has all the advantages of a great drama, from the Flenory brothers who are greater than life to the deadly and high-risk world they live in. This series will be an amazing journey for viewers around the world. “
