50 Cent is producing a series for Starz that will bring viewers into the ultra-competitive, male-dominated world of sports agents specifically shining the spotlight on one Black female agent and her climb up the ladder of success.
The show will be based on real-life sports agent Nicole Lynn, the first Black woman to have a client as a top-three NFL draft pick.
Her client list consists of athletes like Quinnen Williams of the New York Jets, the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Quincy Williams, and Ogbonnia Okoronkwo of the Los Angeles Rams. Lynn also has clients who are entertainers, coaches and softball players. Also, Deadline reports that she received her certification for the NBA this year.
Tash Gray, a writer on “Raising Kanan” and “Snowfall,” has been tapped to pen the new show, with Lynn as an executive producer.
50 Cent will develop it through his G-Unit Film & Television, while also producing a separate series on Starz tentatively called “Moment in Time: The Massacre.”
That show will take viewers behind the scenes of real-life hip-hop stories when criminality came into play. The first season will show how an intense feud between 50 and The Game led to Fiddy beefing with Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond, The Game’s former manager.
In December 2014, Rosemond was convicted on murder-for-hire charges for the death of 50 Cent’s friend Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher, who was shot and killed in The Bronx, New York, five years prior.
The shooting is said to be a retaliation for Fletcher and G-Unit member Tony Yayo approaching Rosemond’s 14-year-old son and slapping him across the face during the beef.
The house of Yayo’s mother, located in Queens, was shot up after the teen was allegedly assaulted, which NYPD said was set up by Rosemond.
Abdul Williams, the executive producer and writer of “The Bobby Brown Story,” will pen “Moment in Time: The Massacre.” There’s no official word so far on a release date.
