According to Deadline, the premium cable network Starz has sealed a development deal on a new series called Tomorrow, Today starring Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Starz is the same network that airs the popular series Power also starring 50 Cent.
I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with my Starz family, we have had great success together on “Power” and I am excited to get going on all of our upcoming projects together. I knew Starz would be the perfect home for “Tomorrow, Today.” This project is very personal to me…creating it, writing it, finding the best team for it and I will continue to be involved every step of the way.” said Jackson.
“We’re excited to develop this series with Curtis to showcase his producing skills with this unique storyline,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz.
Tomorrow, Today is a superhero-themed series about a veteran from the south side of Chicago who, after being falsely imprisoned, becomes the personal experiment of a mad prison doctor trying to create the perfect man – and an unstoppable killing machine. Set free, but on the run, the veteran must reconcile with the world that has turned against him, and use his newfound abilities for good.
As fans gear up for the impending Luke Cage series on Netflix, Black Panther film in 2018 and Cyborg in 2020; we have a new Black superhero coming into the fold to help reflect images of heroes that look like us.
Can we get some Black superheroines on our big and small screens too please?
