50 Cent Calls Out Starz Over ‘Power’
50 Cent was feeling some kind of way after Sunday’s episode of “Power.”
The executive producer of the hit drama took to Instagram and accused Starz of not caring about the show.
He went on to threaten to pull the show from the network.
Peep 50 Cent’s post below.
I woke up feeling a little different about POWER this morning . If the biggest show on your net work doesn’t mean anything, what does your network mean STARZ? I’m taking my talents to south beach f**k this.
Part of 50’s frustration comes from Starz’s refusal to give the show more episodes forcing them to cram the action into one show.
Sunday’s episode, which saw the deaths of two major characters played by Anika Noni Rose and J.R. Ramirez, was originally planned to be a two-parter to include some additional storylines. However, according to showrunner Courtney Kemp, Starz didn’t agree to extend the episode order, resulting in just one packed episode. Kemp said that as a result, the episode lost some story elements.
“Unfortunately, Starz would not give us the extra episode,” Kemp told Entertainment Weekly. “I asked them for 12 episodes for season 4 and they would not do it. So because they would not do it, we had to make it one episode.”
Do you think 50 will really pull the show or is he posturing for attention again?
