About "Power"

The eight-episode first season of "Power" was created by showrunner Courtney Kemp Agboh ("The Good Wife") with Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, on board as Executive Producer and part of a stellar cast.

"Power" tells the story of wealthy New York City nightclub owner, James 'Ghost' St. Patrick, who caters to the city's elite. He wants to build an empire, turning the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there's just one problem: he is living a double life. When he is not in the nightclub, he is the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York for a very high-level clientele. His marriage, family and business all become unknowingly threatened as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he has always dreamed of. Set in modern day New York, the series will film in and around the city's five boroughs, making New York a major character throughout the season.

The cast is led by Omari Hardwick ("Sparkle," "For Colored Girls," "Kick Ass") who is joined by Lela Loren ("Snitch," "Gang Related"), Naturi Naughton ("Fame," "The Client List," "Mad Men") and Joseph Sikora ("Jack Reacher," "Safe," "Boardwalk Empire"). Hardwick stars as main character James 'Ghost' St. Patrick; Loren plays Angela Valdes, an old flame of James' who unexpectedly reenters his life; Naughton will play Tasha St. Patrick, wife, confidant and willing accomplice to James and Sikora plays Tommy Egan, childhood best friend and business partner to Ghost.

Mark Canton ("300," "Immortals," "300: Rise of an Empire"), Randall Emmett ("End of Watch," "2 Guns," "Lone Survivor") and David Knoller ("Big Love," "Carnivàle") also serve as Executive Producers. The series is being produced in association with CBS Television Studios. Starz retains all global distribution and home entertainment rights to the series.
