La La Anthony and 50 Cent are partnering up and making power moves with a new series for Starz called Intercepted.
Deadline exclusively reports that the dramatic series is in development, and will be brought to life via 50’s G-Unit Films and Television and executive produced by La La. The “funny and fresh contemporary romance” stems from author Alexa Martin’s book of the same name, and focuses on the eight years she spent her life as an NFL wife.
Like the Martin’s novel, the Starz series will be centered around the life of Marlee Harper, who will be played by Anthony, and chronicles her relationship woes with professional football players. Deadline points out that casting La La was a seemingly perfect fit because she has “real-life experience as a WAG she can draw upon for the role.”
Intercepted is part of 50’s overall deal with signed with Starz last fall.
