50 Cent Reportedly Developing Starz Series Around Past Beef with The Game
The rap mogul is developing an anthology for Starz based off his storied feud with his former G-Unit member. The project, which is currently titled “Moment in Time: The Massacre,” will focus on “the true stories in which iconic hip hop moments collided with the sensational and sometimes criminal events behind-the-scenes,” reports The Wrap.
The first season will explore the 2005 beef between 50 and Game, which led to a war with music executive Jimmy Henchman, resulting in a murder-for-hire plot for which Henchman is serving a life sentence in prison.

Season 1 will explore how tension between 50 Cent and the former G-Unit member, Game led to an all-out street war, pitting G-Unit against music impresario Jimmy Henchman, resulting in a murder-for-hire plot and Henchman eventually serving a life sentence in prison. There is no word on whether the entire series will be based on the same plot or it will also explore 50’s other beefs.
Abdul Williams will write and executive produce Moment in Time alongside 50 Cent. Some of his previous credits include “The New Edition Story” and “The Bobby Brown Story” at BET. Anil Kurian will help develop both projects on behalf of G-Unit Film & Television.
The second series in the works is an untitled drama inspired by the life of sports agent and attorney Nicole Lynn, the first Black woman to represent a Top 3 NFL draft pick. Tash Grey, who has also worked as a writer and co-executive producer on the POWER prequel ‘Raising Kanan’, will serve as writer and executive producer on it.
The series “follows the rise of a determined young, African-American woman as she breaks through and climbs to the top of the highly competitive and male-dominated world of sports agents.”
These two series are in in addition to the multiple POWER spinoffs at Starz which have kicked off with Power Book II: Ghost, currently airing on the network. 50 recently revealed that he has a total of eight shows in the works, including Twenty Four Seven at CBS starring T.I.
