50 Cent continues to branch out in Hollywood. This time, the rapper and “Power” executive producer is heading into animation as he has partnered with a Black animator to produce a superhero series for Lionsgate and Quibi.

Listen to GHOGH with Jamarlin Martin | Episode 68: Jamarlin Martin Jamarlin talks about the recent backlash against Lebron James for not speaking up for Joshua Wong and the violent Hong Kong protestors.

The animated Black superhero series is named “Trill League,” based on Anthony Piper’s graphic novel. The series will combine superheroes, anime, and hip-hop. Piper is co-creating, writing, and executive producing with Jameel Saleem. 50 Cent and Jermaine Johnson  (“South Park”) of 3 Arts Entertainment are executive producers. 3 Arts Entertainment is producing the series with 50’s G-Unit Film & Television in association with Lionsgate TV.

The “Trill League” must save the world from monsters, super villains, and haters of all kinds. 

“I am excited to bring G-Unit Film & Television to an innovative platform like Quibi with my partners at Lionsgate and 3 Arts. Anthony Piper and Jameel Saleem have created a world we haven’t seen before in “Trill League,” looking forward to sharing it soon,” said Jackson in a statement to Variety.

Launching April 6, 2020, Quibi is a short-form mobile video platform founded in 2018 by Jeffrey Katzenberg. It will carry “Trill League” on its platform.

Jameel Saleem and Piper are co-creators and writers of the series, which they will executive produce with Jackson 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.

“‘Trill League’ parodies many of the characters from DC Comics and launched in 2015 with a Kickstarter campaign. Social media was a big factor in the spreading popularity of the series but, to date, it’s still a relatively obscure brand in the comics world,” Deadline reported.

“As an artist and writer, I couldn’t be more excited to fulfill this lifelong dream of creating a world with voices which reflected the one I came from,” Piper said in an Instagram post. “Working alongside my talented co-writer Jameel, as well as all of the partners involved (G-Unit, Lionsgate, Quibi, 3Arts), this has been one of the dopest endeavors of my creative career.”
