Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is on the move — to Fox.

The hip-hop mogul has signed a non-exclusive broadcast deal with Fox Entertainment, the company announced Tuesday.

As part of the agreement, 50 Cent and his G-Unit Film & Television will develop scripted dramas, live-action comedies and animated series to air on the Fox network.

Projects created under the deal will be owned by Fox Entertainment and produced by its in-house unit, Fox Entertainment Studios, in partnership with G-Unit Film & Television, according to Fox Entertainment President of Scripted Programming Michael Thorn.

“Whether it’s music, film or television, Curtis always delivers premium entertainment that captivates millions of fans across the globe,” Thorn said in a statement. “He is the rare multi-hyphenate with a deft hand at storytelling, no matter the format or medium, and we’re looking forward to developing new and exciting series for Fox with him and his team.”

Added 50 Cent, “I am excited to formalize a partnership with Michael Thorn and Fox that will allow G-Unit Film & Television to focus on putting multiple series on Fox, a perfect broadcast destination for G-Unit Film & Television content while our premium, streaming, scripted and non-scripted slates continue to grow in all directions.”

The agreement came together after the rapper and producer’s overall deal with Starz ended.

In September 2022, 50 Cent announced he was officially exiting Starz. “I’m out,” he captioned a celebratory post on Instagram.

That was after he went public in March 2022, saying he was tired of dealing with “dumb sh–t” at the cable network.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, 50 Cent shared a video of a man packing a suitcase with the caption: “This is me packing my stuff Starz. Sucks, my deal is up over here I’m out… If I told you how much dumb sh–t I deal with over here.”

Despite his one-sided public squabbles with Starz, the rapper is still an executive producer on the cabler’s popular Power franchise and the hit crime drama BMF.
