Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is spearheading a TV adaptation of the Trill League comic book for the upcoming streaming service Quibi. First reported by Deadline, the show is based on writer/artist Anthony Piper's self-published series of the same name which launched in 2015.
"In an era of social injustice and internet trolls, a league of black superheroes, Trill League is tasked with saving the world from monsters, super villains and haters of all kinds," reads the show's description. "Get ready for this remixed rendition of your favorite superheroes as the series satirizes modern American society."
Piper is co-writing the series with South Park alum Jameel Saleem.
"I am excited to bring G-Unit Film & Television to an innovative platform like Quibi with my partners at Lionsgate and 3 Arts," 50 Cent said in the announcement. "Anthony Piper and Jameel Saleem have created a world we haven’t seen before in Trill League, looking forward to sharing it soon."
A launch date for Trill League was not announced; Quibi itself is scheduled to debut April 6, 2020.
