50 Cent and Lionsgate Bring Black Superhero Series To Quibi
Quibi and Lionsgate are teaming with rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson for the animated series Trill League, an adaptation of Anthony Piper’s indie graphic novel and its anime-inflected, hip-hop-informed vision of a black superhero universe.
Jameel Saleem (South Park) and Piper are co-creators and writers of the series, which they will executive produce with Jackson (Power) and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Jermaine Johnson. The series is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment and G-Unit Film & Television in association with Lionsgate Television.
“I am excited to bring G-Unit Film & Television to an innovative platform like Quibi with my partners at Lionsgate and 3 Arts,” Jackson said. “Anthony Piper and Jameel Saleem have created a world we haven’t seen before in Trill League, looking forward to sharing it soon.”
