Today (March 26), Billboard can announce that Drake and his co-manager Adel “Future” Nur will executive produce a new series on Quibi titled 48 Laws of Power.
Based on Robert Greene’s New York Times best-selling book of the same name, 48 Laws of Power will “detail the nature of power and how one can secure and maintain it.”
Drake will also direct an episode. Along with Drake and Adel, Jason Shirer of Dremcrew (Drake’s production company), Zack Hayden of Anonymous Content, and Greene will serve as the show’s executive producer.
“When Drake and I sat down with Robert Greene, it was incredibly inspiring. The laws allow for a wide range of dynamic storytelling, and Quibi allows us to tell these stories in bite-sized chapters similar to the book,” Future tells Billboard.
“I have always thought that The 48 Laws of Power would be a perfect fit for a series, bringing to life the timeless Machiavellian game of power as portrayed in the book,” adds Greene. “But it was not until Drake and Future with Anonymous Content approached me with their unique cinematic approach to the laws that I knew I could join forces with them and go all in for a filmed interpretation of my work.”
Quibi is a mobile entertainment platform set to launch April 6. They will be offering a 90-day free trial beginning that same day.
