50 Cent Announces 8 Mile TV Series Featuring Eminem

50 Cent has announced that its next project will involve one of its oldest collaborators, who said on the January 6 episode of Big Boy TV that he is adapting Eminem’s 2002 film 8 Mile into a television series.

“I’m going to put his 8 Mile on TV,” 50 Cent said, adding that Eminem is involved and the project is underway: “We’re on the move.”

He also boasted that the show “is going to be big. I don’t have duds.” He then proved again that he’s not a baseball fan by saying he would “bat at a hundred”.

Artist-born Curtis Jackson stated that the show “should be there for his legacy,” comparing his goals to the recent reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. “I’m also doing Snoop’s story,” he continued. “We went on hiatus because of Starz. I had problems with them back then. So I paused on Murder Was the Case, but I think Snoop is – if the OJ process is working, why wouldn’t Murder Was the Case be working at this point?

The talk begins at 12:50 p.m. of the interview and you can read it below.

This isn’t the first time Eminem and 50 Cent have collaborated on a television series. In 2021, Em made a cameo in the 50 produced BMF playing White Boy Rick. Last year they performed together with Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige at the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show.
