According to Deadline, Discovery+ has given a straight-to-series order to Confessions of a Crime Queen, a true crime anthology series from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television banner.
Confessions of a Crime Queen is described as a first-of-its-kind anthology series that brings to life riveting, headline-making stories by combining documentary and scripted genres. Each season will focus on the true story of one larger-than-life woman who created and led a multi-million-dollar criminal empire before a dramatic fall from power. The subject will be portrayed by an A-list actress who will also interview the real life female crime lord at the center of the story. Casting is underway for the first season, expected to debut next year.
“As G-Unit Film & Television continues its rapid growth, we have to think outside the box and challenge ourselves to tell entertaining and important stories in new ways,” said Jackson. With the support of discovery+, our friends at Lionsgate TV and in partnership with top producer, Rich Bye and Goodbye Pictures, we have the right team to help us continue pushing the creative envelope. I am thrilled to add Confessions of a Crime Queen to the G-Unit Film & Television slate in 2022.”
