Quibi and Lionsgate are teaming with rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson for the animated series Trill League, an adaptation of Anthony Piper’s indie graphic novel and its anime-inflected, hip-hop-informed vision of a black superhero universe.
Jameel Saleem (South Park) and Piper are co-creators and writers of the series, which they will executive produce with Jackson (Power) and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Jermaine Johnson. The series is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment and G-Unit Film & Television in association with Lionsgate Television.
“I am excited to bring G-Unit Film & Television to an innovative platform like Quibi with my partners at Lionsgate and 3 Arts,” Jackson said. “Anthony Piper and Jameel Saleem have created a world we haven’t seen before in Trill League, looking forward to sharing it soon.”
