50 Cent Set to Produce Dramatic Series on Police Gangs

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson may be a petulant ass-wipe, but he has still managed to stay rich, and even relevant.

Among other things, he and his G-Unit Film & Television company will executive-produce a new drama, The Oath (working title), a 10-part series that delves into gangs.


And no, we’re not talking about the Bloods and Crips, but gangs within the police force (oh, you didn’t know?).

The series was written by former Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Halpin, who will supposedly bring a real-life perspective to the drama, one that “centers on a gang that started out with the right intentions, but its members are forced to turn on each other after being picked off by the FBI,” according to Deadline.

The Oath will be streamed on Crackle, a Sony subsidiary, which just lost its flagship series, Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which is moving to Netflix after nine seasons on the platform.

No word on whether 50, who also executive-produces and stars as Kanan in the popular Starz show Power, will be in front of the camera as well.
