The upcoming docuseries with feature eight episodes, produced by G-Unit Film and Television and Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions, will be executive produced by Jackson and Shan Nicholson, who will also serve as showrunner.

The popular Starz scripted series, BMF, is inspired by the true story of notable brothers Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory.  The series currently averages 6.5 million multi-platform views per episode. The Season 1 finale of BMF aired last Sunday, Nov. 21 across all Starz platforms.

The show has already been renewed for a second season, and its creator 50 Cent is already finding more avenues to profit from the iconic story. He shared his thoughts on the new docuseries exclusively to Deadline.

“The docuseries will offer an inside look at different perspectives from all of those involved, BMF — Blowing Money Fast,” Jackson explains.
