Nicki Minaj to executive produce and star in Lady Danger, a new animated series from Amazon Freevee based on Alex de Campi’s popular Dark Horse comic book series of the same name.

The afrofuturistic series is set in the year 2075 and follows Lady Danger, a resurrected government field agent who conceals her true identity as she fights villains destroying the earth and its vulnerable inhabitants.

Joining Minaj as executive producers are Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson under his G-Unit Film & TV banner, as well as Brian Sher, and Paul Young & Mike Griffin for Make Good Content. The animation studio responsible for bringing this action-packed series to life is Starburns Industries.

The show is written by Carlton Jordan and Crystle Roberson. Jordan’s credits include Disney FairyTale Weddings for Freeform, Big Freedia: Queen Of Bounce for Fuse, and the upcoming Unfiltered: Paris Jackson series for Facebook Watch. Roberson completed the Sony Diversity Directors Program and directed multiple episodes of Ambitions and Greenleaf for OWN/Lionsgate and Bigger and American Soul for BET. She is also a writer who sold her spec pilot Love Handles to HBO with Regina King producing.

50 Cent, who has produced a wide variety of content across numerous platforms under his banner, G-Unit Film & Television, will bring his expertise to the production. He is most notably known for the hit Starz series Power, which he starred in, executive produced, and directed. He has also served as an executive producer on the expansion of the Power universe with spin-offs Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, and Power Book IV: Force, and the most recently announced projects in development: three BMF spinoffs and the British boxing drama Fightland. Jackson is represented by APA and attorney Steve Savva.
