Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and La La Anthony are among the executive producers of the project.
Starz is developing a limited series based on the life of Cyntoia Brown Long, a sex trafficking victim who was convicted of murder as a minor and later had her sentence commuted.
Power franchise executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and La La Anthony, who has been a long-time supporter of Brown-Long’s cause, will executive produce the drama, titled The Case of Cyntoia Brown. Santa Sierra (Power Book III, Vida) will write and executive produce, and Brown Long and her husband, Jamie Long, will consult.
We’re honored to be entrusted with Cyntoia’s story, which shines a light on the injustice of a system that tried and sentenced an at-risk minor as an adult when she was a victim herself of sex trafficking.
This limited series from Curtis, La La and Santa chronicles Cyntoia’s long journey to freedom and furthers our #TakeTheLead programming mandate centered on narratives by, about and for women and underrepresented audiences.
