La La Anthony is the latest star to join the cast of 50 Cent’s drama for Starz, called “Power.”
La La will play a character named LaKeisha Grant – childhood friend to Tasha St. Patrick, played by Naturi Naughton.
LaKeisha is described as Tasha’s closest confidant but is kept in the dark on certain aspects of Tasha’s life out of necessity.
“Power,” from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, tells the story of wealthy New York City nightclub owner, James “Ghost” St. Patrick, who caters to the city’s elite. He wants to build an empire, turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there’s just one problem: he is living a double life. When he is not in the club, he is the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York for a very high-level clientele. His marriage, family and business all become unknowingly threatened as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he wants to be most of all.
“Power” will begin production on an eight hour-long episode first season this fall and is expected to premiere on Starz in 2014. Starz retains all global distribution and home entertainment rights to the series.
