Starz Drama Power Gets Second Season

The Starz drama Power, starring Omari Hardwick, made its debut last week. And has already been renewed for a second season.  According to Deadline, the show’s second season will be 10 episodes long

"I'm really proud of this project," said executive producer 50 Cent. "I've been pretty much hands-on and involved with the entire process and I feel like my baby's born. Omari was the perfect person for it. The stars lined up for me when started going through the casting process. He was the #1 person on the list for us to pick for the show."

"It was pretty amazing," Hardwick told reporters. "He's tried… and proven in other parts of his life, as a mogul, as a Rap artist. It was really interesting for me to see him take on the executive producer hat of a show like this. He had done producing before…but to see him be active and take my phone call on the dime…If I'd call and go, 'We really need you on the set today.' We have an incredible cast, so it wasn't just me, it would be me speaking for the cast and going, 'Folks need your energy today.' And he'd be down in like 30 minutes. He was really active…He's great to work with." 

Power, which also stars 50 Cent, Naturi Naughton, and Joseph Sekora airs Saturdays at 9pm on Starz.
