Power, produced by Courtney A. Kemp, follows the story of drug-dealer James St. Patrick, essayed by Omari Hardwick who operated under the nickname 'Ghost.' He wishes to leave the criminal underworld and indulge in a legitimate business as a nightclub owner. James struggles to manage both his lives, avoid an arrest and save his crumbling marriage.

The show also stars Joseph Sikora, as James' partner Tommy Egan and Lela Loren as Angela Valdes.

Rapper 50 Cent appears as rival drug-dealer Kanan Starks in the series. After the acclaim for the first five seasons, Starz network has renewed it for a sixth season which is scheduled to air in 2019.
