About "Power"

From Executive Producer Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson and show creator Courtney A. Kemp ("The Good Wife") comes season three of the hit drama "Power," steeped in the seductive nightlife of New York's elite and the violent underworld of international drug cartels.

Season Three finds James St. Patrick as the owner of new nightclubs, out of the drug game and in a rekindled relationship with his first love, Angela - the Assistant United States Attorney sworn to bring him to justice. But just as they begin to believe James' past criminal persona of 'Ghost' may finally be behind them, both are forced to face the consequences of running from a life from which no one gets away clean.

James' estranged best friend Tommy has just reunited with his newly returned love, Holly, but must attempt to not only rebuild Lobos' devastated drug organization, but to kill Ghost - turning brother against brother.

James St. Patrick is on the verge of having everything he's ever wanted, but will this new phase of his life end before it begins with old sins and the specter of 'Ghost' coming back to haunt him? Be careful what you wish for.

Courtney A. Kemp serves as the Creator, Showrunner and Executive Producer of "Power." Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Mark Canton, Randell Emmett and Gary Lennon serve as Executive Producers on "Power."

The show is also produced by G-Unit Films and Television, the production company launched by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.
