50 Cent Negotiates With FOX For Animated Comedy Series Based On His Childhood

50 Cent is in negotiations to sell an animated comedy series about his life to FOX.

According to Deadline, the rapper is working with feature producer Randall Emmett and Imagine TV to sell the untitled project, which is loosely based on his adolescence.

The series, written by Carl Jones, is expected to be given a pilot or presentation order, focusing on “a mischievous but well-meaning boy who often tangles with his eccentric family and neighborhood.” In addition to Fif, Jones and Emmett, executive producers on the project include Imagine TV’s Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo and Andrew Jameson.

50 has previously adapted his life for the big screen with 2005’s theatrical release Get Rich or Die Tryin’. He will next appear in The Frozen Ground and The Tomb, and is executive producing the upcoming drama series Power for Starz.
