In 2005, he founded G-Unit Film & Television Inc., which has produced a wide range of content across numerous platforms and sold a myriad of shows to various networks. The company's arrival in Shreveport signals a new era of film, television, and entertainment possibilities.

"We are thrilled that G-Unit Studios will plant its roots in Shreveport," said Mayor Tom Arceneaux. "This
city's rich culture and talent provides the perfect backdrop for this endeavor. We are eager to collaborate
with Mr. Jackson and G-Unit Film & Television to bring captivating movies and entertainment to
Shreveport and Caddo Parish.”

It is hoped that with the opening of this new facility, it will bring back film and television productions to Shreveport, similar to like we had in the early 2000's, when films featuring A-list stars like Kevin Costner, Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock, and Gerard Butler were regularly being filmed here.

"As someone who has always believed in the transformative power of music, film, and television, I'm
beyond excited to introduce the expansion of my G-Unit Film & Television through the launch of G-Unit
Studios right here in Shreveport. From the gritty narratives of the streets to the compelling stories that
define our era, G-Unit has always been more than just entertainment; it's a platform for voices that need to
be heard, stories that need to be told. Bringing G-Unit Studios to Shreveport is not just a business
decision; it's a commitment to fostering talent, creating opportunities, and building a community that
thrives through creativity and innovation. We see Shreveport as a beacon of inspiration and creativity,"
said Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
