Fox has signed a non-exclusive broadcast direct deal with the rapper and producer. Under the agreement, Jackson and G-Unit will collaborate with the network to create scripted series in both live-action and animated formats. Lean more about the development deal.
Any series that are approved under the deal will be owned by the broadcaster, and they will be produced by Fox Entertainment Studios and G-Unit Film & Television.
After leaving an overall deal with Starz, which he had criticized for “dumb shit,” Jackson has signed a deal with Fox a few months later. However, he is still an executive producer for Starz’s Power franchise and BMF. As the Fox deal is non-exclusive, he is at liberty to offer his producing services to other networks.
In a statement, Jackson expressed his excitement about partnering with Michael Thorn and Fox. He mentioned that this collaboration will enable G-Unit Film & Television to concentrate on developing several series for Fox, which is a suitable platform for their content. At the same time, the company’s premium, streaming, scripted, and non-scripted lineups will expand in various directions.
In addition to his work on the Fox deal, Jackson has produced a variety of other projects. These include For Life on ABC, Hip Hop Homicides on We TV, and the 2022 Super Bowl halftime show, which earned him an Emmy award for Best Variety Special. Jackson is represented by APA, AKR PR, and attorney Stephen Savva.
