50 Cent Set to Develop New Series ‘Vice City’ for Paramount+


50 Cent has been tapped to lead the new series Vice City for Paramount +. According to Deadline, the series is a partnership of Lionsgate Television, Paramount Television Studios, and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson‘s G-Unit Film & Television.

The series is an original idea from writers and executive producers Darnell Metayer and Josh Peters, who will serve as executive producer and director. Executive producers also include G-Unit, as well as Alex Young and Jason Spitz for 87 Eleven.

Vice City will follow three friends and former soldiers returning to Miami in the mid-80s after a dishonorable discharge for their involvement in the Iran Contra scandal.


The synopsis adds:

Disgraced, displaced, and forgotten by the country they served and with no good job prospects, the three friends partner with a mysterious Colombian immigrant, uniting their financial needs and criminal ambitions to form a heist crew. Fueled by the need for American green, they traverse a violent and dangerous path in pursuit of the American Dream.
