Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has promised television viewers a unique experience “unlike anything” they’ve seen before with his forthcoming show “The Oath.”
Announced last week during a preview of upcoming shows from Sony Pictures streaming network Crackle, the 10-episode drama will explore “a subculture of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend,” according to a press release for the network.
The series ― which is written and created by former L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Halpin and executive produced by Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television production company ― will be a fresh experience for television viewers, 50 said.
“I am very excited to be partnering with Sony Pictures Television Networks and Crackle,” he said in the release. “To be able to bring this story to life is something I’m looking forward to and Joe Halpin’s personal experience will make this unlike anything that’s been seen before.”
In addition to “The Oath,” Jackson is also developing a Crackle drama series titled “RPN,” which follows “a used-car salesman who moonlights as a getaway driver for a Boston crime syndicate.”
Jackson already produces the hit Starz series “Power,” which will have its season 4 premiere in July.
