The ‘Power’ NYC premiere took place last night at the Highline Ballroom. The series is created by Courtney Kemp Agboh ( “The Good Wife”), who will serve as executive producer and showrunner. 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. Along with 50 Cent who also executive-produced and costars on the show.
Well the story plays on that whole idea of a bad boy “trying to become legit.” According to Starz.com, the “Power” tells the story of a visionary crime drama, set in two different worlds, the glamorous side of New York club scene and the brutal drug trade. As Ghost (Hardwick) is seduced by the prospect of a legitimate life, everything precious to him becomes unknowingly threatened. Once you’re in, can you ever get out?
The cast is led by Omari Hardwick (“Sparkle”, “Being Mary Jane”), Naturi Naughton (“Notorious”, “Fame”) along with Lela Loren (“Snitch”, “Gang Related”), Joseph Sikora (“Boardwalk Empire”, “Safe”). Hardwick stars as main character ‘James “Ghost” St.Patrick who appears to have it all along with his wife “Tasha” played by Naughton, but will his past get the best of him? Well I guess you’re just going to have to tune in to the season premiere on June 7th at 9pmET/PT n Starz with an eight hour-long episode first season.
