‘Power’ is a television series that follows “James “Ghost” St. Patrick, who is a wealthy New York night club owner who has it all, catering to the city’s elite and dreaming big, but lives a double life as a drug kingpin.
Ghost’ played by actor Omari Hardwick, from the outside seems to have it all. He has a gorgeous wife and family, an amazing penthouse overlooking Manhattan and the owner of one of the top nightclubs ‘Truth’ in the city. What many doesn’t know is that Ghost lives a double life. He uses the club to cover his drug empire that serves only the rich and influential. His amazing friendship with Tommy who handles most of the dirty work shows a softer side of brotherly love. Although greed push many drug-dealers to keep going until they eventually end up either in jail or dead, Ghost has every intention to leave that lifestyle behind and focus on his new venture as a businessman and club owner, but until he is financially secure to his standards, he uses the club as a cover up while laundering drug money. Before the end of season one, Ghost made his life even more complicated by reconnecting with childhood friend Angela. This reunion quickly led to an affair.
We’ve all come to know and love rapper, turn actor and entrepreneur Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson through the start of his music career. Jackson have since branched out into other areas outside of music. Continuing his journey to greatness in Starz hit television series ‘Power.’ Power creator Courtney Kemp Agboh in the image above with co-star and co-executive producer Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson, is an incredible writer who received an Emmy nomination for her work on CBS’s “The Good Wife” in 2011. She also worked on the Bernie Mac Show. Power, however is the first show she’s done as a show runner. She said in an interview that she often called on Jackson, for guidance. “He really helped me build Ghost,” Ms. Agboh said. “Because I am not actually a super-rich, urban human. I’m kind of middle of the road.” Jackson said that he never use drugs, but sold during his years living in South Jamaica, Queens, so it is understandable calling him for guidance. When looking for knowledge in that world, why not go to someone who lived it. Watch the interview below.
