StarzPlay has aired the first of the four planned spinoffs of Starz Original drama series Power exclusively in the MENA region. Titled Power Book II: Ghost, the crime-drama was broadcasted exclusively on September 7. StarzPlay will air every new episode of the show on a weekly basis, the same time as it airs in the US.
The popular series Power wrapped up its sixth and final season in February. Power is the story of James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), a merciless, intelligent drug dealer under the street name “Ghost”, who desires to leave the criminal world to pursue legitimate business interests as a nightclub owner. St. Patrick aims to balance these two lives while avoiding police capture amid a crumbling marriage and shifting economic alliances.
The 10-episode series consist of new characters, including powerful allies like Method Man’s Davis MacLean and potential foes like Mary J Blige’s Monet Tejada who have joined the casting.
Power Book II: Ghost is executive produced by creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp via End of Episode and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson through G-Unit Film and Television.
The SVP Programming & Acquisitions of StarzPlay, Khaled Benchouche, said, “Power has been our most binged TV Show on the platform ever since we launched. For us, the series is very close to our hearts, and so we are more than excited to bring the next chapter of the Power saga exclusively for our MENA subscribers. Audiences have been eagerly waiting to find out how the spinoff picks up right after the events of Power ‘s finale. We will continue to offer unmatched content to our customers and hope they enjoy the next stint of the Power universe.”
