50 Cent’s TV career continues to flourish with a new series Confessions of a Crime Queen heading to Discovery+.
The network gave a straight-to-series order to Confessions of a Crime Queen, a true-crime anthology series. 50 is developing the project through his G-Unit Film & Television banner, Rich Bye and his Goodbye Pictures and Lionsgate Television.
The series is described as the first-of-its-kind anthology series. It brings to life riveting, headline-making stories by combining documentary and scripted genres. Each season will focus on a different crime queen.
Each season of Confessions of a Crime Queen will center on the true story of a woman who built and led a multi-million dollar crime empire. It will tell her rise and dramatic fall from power. An A-list actress will portray the subject of the season and she will also interview the real-life female crime lord at the center of the story.
“As G-Unit Film & Television continues its rapid growth, we have to think outside the box and challenge ourselves to tell entertaining and important stories in new ways,” said Jackson announcing the series. “With the support of discovery+, our friends at Lionsgate TV and in partnership with top producer, Rich Bye and Goodbye Pictures, we have the right team to help us continue pushing the creative envelope. I am thrilled to add Confessions of a Crime Queen to the G-Unit Film & Television slate in 2022.”
Jackson and Bye are executive producing the series.
“Goodbye Pictures is continually exploring ways to challenge narrative convention and is thrilled to explore a bold new form of storytelling with partners Curtis, Lionsgate, and discovery+ on Confessions of a Crime Queen,” said Bye.
The first season casting is underway. Season one will debut some time next year.
