“In The Club” was 50 Cent’s first legitimate hit more then ten years ago and now he is putting on his producer hat for a TV series about a nightclub kingpin. Omari Hardwick stars in “Power,” a Starz Network series produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
Hardwick (“Being Mary Jane”) plays James “Ghost” St. Patrick who is the owner of a popular night club in NYC called “Truth.” However, it’s just a front to launder the money he makes running one of the most lucrative drug businesses in the city. How long can he keep this double life going?
“Power” does seem to bear a striking resemblance to 2003 UPN series “Platinum” in style and delivery but we’ll wait until we see it to pass further judgement.
