50 Cent announces hip-hop inspired anime series ‘Trill League’

23 December 2019

With just weeks to go before the final episodes of Power are aired, 50 Cent has unveiled plans for a brand-new TV show.

Moving away from the world of Ghost, the St. Patricks and Tommy Egan, 50 Cent is presenting us with a new superhero cartoon called Trill League which will be based on the graphic novel of the same name.

In a statement, the Power executive producer said, “I am excited to bring G-Unit Film & Television to an innovative platform like Quibi with my partners at Lionsgate and 3 Arts… Anthony Piper and Jameel Saleem have created a world we haven’t seen before in Trill League.”

The series will follow the novel’s characters Blackmayne, Sparrow, Soul, Swolemayne and combines elements of anime with hip-hop culture.

The show’s description says, “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. Get ready for this remixed rendition of your favourite superheroes as the series satirizes modern American society.”

Trill League is expected to premiere sometime in 2020 on Quibi.

Quibu currently has projects with Idris Elba, Don Cheadle and Laurence Fishburne.
