Drake is donning his Hollywood producer hat and partnering with Quibi on a series based on the popular book 48 Laws Of Power.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the short-form streaming service, which is set to launch on April 6, has greenlit a series based on The 48 Laws of Power, the best-selling nonfiction book by Robert Greene. The Canadian rapper is among its executive producers and will also direct an episode.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The book first published in 1998, and has long been a favorite in the hip-hop and business communities— it’s referenced in songs by Drake, Jay-Z , and Kanye West, among many others.
Each episode of the Quibi show will focus on a different law, and the series as a whole will detail the art of gaining and maintaining power.
Drake and his Dreamcrew partner Adel “Future” Nur have brought us HBO’s Euphoria in the past and will executive produce with Dreamcrew’s Jason Shrier, Greene and Anonymous Content’s Zack Hayden.
“When Drake and I sat down with Robert Greene it was incredibly inspiring,” Nur said. “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.”
