MIPTV has announced the exclusive preview of the upcoming Starz original drama series, Power, at the World Premiere TV Screening event on 7 April.

The eight-episode first season was created by showrunner Courtney Kemp Agboh (The Good Wife) with Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, on board as executive producer and part of the cast.

Power 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, turning the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there's just one problem: he is living a double life as the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York.

The cast is led by Omari Hardwick (Sparkle), joined by Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton and Joseph Sikora.

The series is being produced in association with CBS Television Studios.

This year's MIPTV will take place in Cannes from 7-10 April.
