50 Cent Hosts Starz Power Book II: Ghost Hamptons Premiere Drive-In Event


50 Cent at STARZ “Power Book II: Ghost” Premiere Drive-In Screening Event

The stars were aligned over the holiday weekend to celebrate the highly anticipated series premiere of “Power Book II: Ghost” with a drive-in screening in the Hamptons. 

 

Executive producer and creative force behind the “Power” Universe franchise, Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson hosted invited celebrity guests at TV journalist Jill Rappaport’s horse farm in the exclusive Hamptons neighborhood in Water Mill, New York. As COVID-19 health concerns continue to loom, social distancing orders were in place requiring drivers to pull up in their cars in front of a large screen for the exclusive airing of the first episode. Guests were served car-side with items like lobster rolls, mini pizzas, homemade sea salt popcorn, s'mores in a jar, rose champagne frozé and bottled margaritas. 

 

Joining 50 Cent, Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch and Rappaport were notable guests: Christie Brinkley, John Leguizamo, Don Lemon, Tim MaloneAlexa Ray Joel and Candace Bushnell.

 

The STARZ Original Series “Power Book II: Ghost,” starring Michael Rainey Jr., Naturi Naughton, Mary J. Blige and Cliff “Method Man” Smith, premiered on Sunday, September 6 at 9 PM ET/PT before moving to its regular timeslot at 8 PM on STARZ in the U.S.  

 

“Power Book II: Ghost" picks up shortly after the earth-shattering events of “Power” as Tariq St. Patrick grapples with a new world order: his father dead and his mother, Tasha, facing charges for the murder her son committed. Not to mention the academic rigors of the Ivy League university Tariq is attending to earn his inheritance. Truly on his own for the first time in his life, Tariq is forced to split his time between school and hustling to pay for Davis MacLean, the fame-hungry defense lawyer who is Tasha’s only hope of getting out of jail. With no better options, Tariq turns to the familiar drug game, entangling himself with a cutthroat family headed by Monet Stewart Tejada, that’s been at it far longer than him. As Tariq tries to balance his drug operation with his grades, love life, and family, he figures out that the only way to avoid the same fate his father met is to become him — only better.

 

“Power Book II: Ghost” is executive produced by series creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp through her company End of Episode and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson through his G-Unit Film and Television. Also serving as executive producers on the series are Mark Canton through his Atmosphere Entertainment MM, End of Episode’s Chris Selak and Danielle De Jesus, Shana Stein and Bart Wenrich. Lionsgate TV produces the series for STARZ.
