Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson will be the executive producer on “Trill League,” an animated superhero show for Quibi. The mobile-only streaming service announced the new show earlier this week. The show is based around black superheroes tasked with saving the world from villains in an era of social injustice.
The show’s based on the graphic novel by Anthony Piper, who combined books, anime, and hip-hop in his book. “I am excited to bring G-Unit Film & Television to an innovative platform like Quibi with my partners at Lionsgate and 3 Arts,” 50 said. “Anthony Piper and Jameel Saleem have created a world we haven’t seen before”.
Voice actors for the show have yet to be named, but they will surely be announced soon. Quibi has continued adding shows at a fast pace this year, managing to revive 90’s Nickelodeon show, “Legends of the Hidden Temple.”
Each show will be no longer than 10 minutes, with the app costing viewers just $4.99 per month.
