50 Cent Lands New Show About Snoop Dogg

In 1993, while he was recording his breakout album “Doggystyle,” Snoop Dogg’s bodyguard was shot and killed by a rival gang member. Snoop was driving the car and was charged with murder along with the shooter.

In 1996, they were both acquitted with Johnnie Cochrane representing them in court and claiming self-defense.

Now 50 Cent has decided to turn this trial into a whole new TV series. 50 cent took to Twitter to make the official announcement saying, 

“I’m afraid this is going to be a problem for everything onTV.  A moment in time (MURDER WAS THE CASE) when the dream you have been wishing for feels like a nightmare.”

50 Cent Put Starz On The Map

50 Cent wants full credit for the impact he is making on television — and the coffers of the networks.  

With the wild success of his real-life-inspired series’ “BMF”, “Power” and the new “Power Book III: Raising Kanan”, 50 Cent proved that the portrayal of lives outside of the typical TV/Hollywood format can be wildly popular. After the success of “Power” for 6 seasons on television, 50 Cent launched secondary shows that have been reaping critical success in their own rights.
