The multi-project pact includes the development of scripted dramas, comedies and animated series. Projects created under the deal will be owned by Fox Entertainment and produced by Fox Entertainment Studios in collaboration with Jackson’s G-Unit Film & Television banner.

The news comes around five months after Jackson exited his overall deal with Lionsgate-owned cable network Starz, where he executive produced all titles in the Power franchise (Power, Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan and Power Book IV: Force), among other projects.

Other titles produced under G-Unit Film & Television include For Life for ABC, Hip Hop Homicides for WeTV and Black Mafia Family for Starz. The company also has a three-picture deal to produce horror films with Eli Roth and 3BlackDot.

“He is the rare multi-hyphenate with a deft hand at storytelling, no matter the format or medium, and we’re looking forward to developing new and exciting series for Fox with him and his team,” said Fox Entertainment’s president of scripted programming Michael Thorn.

Jackson added: “I am excited to formalise a partnership with Michael Thorn and Fox that will allow G-Unit Film & Television to focus on putting multiple series on Fox, a perfect broadcast destination for G-Unit Film & Television content while our premium, streaming, scripted and non-scripted slates continue to grow in all directions.”
