50 Cent is preparing to release a new animated series called Trill League. The show, which is based on the graphic novel by Anthony Piper, will follow the adventures of a squad of Black superheroes.
“I am excited to bring G-Unit Film & Television to an innovative platform like Quibi with my partners at Lionsgate and 3 Arts," 50 told Variety. "Anthony Piper and Jameel Saleem have created a world we haven’t seen before in Trill League, looking forward to sharing it soon.”
The show is expected to combine the superhero realm with the anime world and hip-hop culture. The line-up of characters includes the leader of the movement Blackmayne, his 11-year-old sidekick Sparrow, the first woman of the group Wondeisha, a crime-fighting pimp named Soul and the muscle of the team, Swolemayne.
Trill League is co-created, written and executive produced by Piper and Jameel Saleem. It's also being executively produced by 50 and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Jermaine Johnson.
The series is set to premiere during the launch of the new short-content streaming service Quibi, which is set for April 6, 2020.
