Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has signed a new two-year overall deal with Starz through his G Unit Film & Television, Inc., the company announced Tuesday.

The new deal will allow the executive producer to oversee his hit show “Power” as well as develop new projects for the premium cable network.

“Starz has been the perfect partner to make ‘Power’ the success that it is and I am looking forward to developing many more record-breaking series with them,” said Jackson in a statement.

“Curtis is a wonderful hands-on producer and actor on ‘Power’ and we look forward to expanding his roles behind-the-camera with Starz over the next two years,” added Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz.

Production on the third season of “Power,” the New York-based drama, began earlier this month at the series’ home base at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn. A 10-episode run has been ordered for season three.

Creator, Executive Producer and Showrunner Courtney Kemp Agboh returned to the helm alongside Jackson, Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and Gary Lennon.

Jackson is represented by APA and attorneys Stephen Savva and Eric Feig.
