AXN Italy grabs Power

AXN in Italy has acquired exclusive rights to US drama Power.



The series, due to air launch on May 25, is set in a New York City divided between the luxury world of Manhattan nightclubs and the drug-dealing underworld.

It tells the story of James “Ghost” St Patrick (Omari Hardwick), a man who lives a double life: a nightclub owner and the head of a lucrative drug cartel.

The cast also includes Joseph Sikora, Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton, and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

Power is executive produced by Jackson, showrunner Courtney Kemp Agboh, David Knoller, Mark Canton, and Randall Emmett.

Power, which airs on Starz in the US, is distributed by Starz Worldwide Distribution. It is produced by Starz in association with CBS Television Studios.

Sony Pictures Television-owned AXN has also picked up the second season of Power, which will air in Italy in September, and the third season of another Starz series, Black Sails.
