Starz rewards 50 Cent’s “BMF” a second season just four days after its’ debut. BMF, produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and writer/executive producer and Detroit native Randy Huggins (Star, Rebel, Power), debuted as the No. 1 premiere on the Starz app this year. According to the premium cabler, and based on preliminary reporting, the episode also ranks as one of the most highly engaged series premieres ever across OTT platforms.

“Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson continues to find and cultivate stories like ‘BMF’ that are culturally relevant, bringing the network important untold stories that are incredibly diverse both in front of and behind the camera,” Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO of Starz, said. “Following such a strong debut, we’re excited to see what Curtis, Randy and the award-worthy cast deliver in the second season.”

The drama series is inspired by the true story of the Flenory brothers, Terry and Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, who grew up in the streets of Detroit in the late 1980s. The duo gave birth to one of the most influential drug trafficking and money laundering organization in the country. The drug ring racked up $270 million in profits, employed more than 500 people, and distributed thousands of kilograms of cocaine. The operations took place in multiple cities, including Detroit, Atlanta, Miami, St. Louis, Los Angeles, and Birmingham, Alabama.

BMF stars Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory; along with Da’Vinchi, Russell Hornsby, Michole Briana White, Ajiona Alexus, Eric Kofi Abrefa Myles Truitt and Steve Harris. Snoop Dogg, Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight, Wood Harris, La La Anthony appear in recurring roles.

When asked about the playing the role of his father, Lil Meech says “I want to make them proud because they were the ones right there to do it, so I gotta do it right.” He continued, “I can’t just do it how I want to. I have to really put the work in and make sure it was done right, so my dad, as well as my family, can be proud.”

Jackson executive produces via his G-Unit Film and Television banner along with showrunner and writer Huggins. Tasha Smith (Empire, Power) serves as director and executive producer. Heather Zuhlke joins as an executive producer on the sophomore season with Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements who are both set to return to executive produce.
