Demonstrating yet again that cutting out all masturbation leaves you with lots of free time to pursue other forms of self-gratification, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has signed on to executive produce a new drama for Starz, adding to it an already-full slate of being a boxing promoter, running his comedy site, starring in and producing films, writing novels and comic books, peddling water, headphones, body spray, and fitness books and also occasionally rapping things whenever the need to solidify his brand arises out on the streets. According to Variety, he'll also work in producing the series Power, which concerns a New York nightclub owner who "skirts the line between legitimacy and criminality"—themes so memorably captured in 50 Cent's hit song, "In Da Club," what with its lyrics, "You can find me in da club / Bottle full of bub / Skirting the line between legitimacy and criminality / I'm an antihero leading the sort of double life that makes for compelling modern cable drama / So come give me a hug if you're into archetypes such as this." It will be written by The Good Wife's Courtney Kemp Agboh, who is not as good at rapping.
