FIRST Season 2 Trailer Of “POWER” + LaLa Anthony Set To Release 2nd Self-Help Book “The Power Playbook” + Will Packer’s “People Are Talking” Picked Up By NBC
All you "Power" fans get EXCITED! We have the first trailer from the upcoming second season of the STARZ drama series. And from the looks of the trailer, this new season will NOT disappoint. Also, LaLa Anthony and Will Packer have new projects in the works. Find out the deets inside...
YES! "POWER" is on its way back to bringing us our tv drama fix with a brand new second season. And we are here for everything Ghost will be getting into.
If you're a fan of the show, you know Ghost (Omari Hardwick) was thinking about leaving NYC to start a new TRUTH nightclub in Miami, and was attempting to bring his mistress Angela Valdez (Lela Loren) along. And based upon the newly released trailer for the 2nd season, it looks like Ghost will finally find out he has been sleeping with a federal agent!
We also see his old friend Kanan (played by 50 Cent) and his right hand man Tommy (Joseph Sikora) join forces. And it appears the two are working to take Ghost down. We definitely saw this one coming.
Here's a synopsis of what to expect for the new season:
James “Ghost” St. Patrick doubling down on his drug business to save his nightclub and dream of a legitimate future. Ghost’s work troubles pale in comparison to juggling his relationship with his wife, Tasha, and his first love Angela, who’s also an Assistant US Attorney investigating his drug organization.
Ghost is set further back from his dream by his business partner, Tommy, who loves the drug game, and his former mentor, Kanan, fresh out of jail, and looking for revenge.
Season two has Ghost in a race against himself: Can he get out of the drug game alive before Angela discovers who he is?
Lordt! We showed you a few sneak peeks from the set a couple months ago, now get into the official trailer below:
The new season of "POWER" premieres June 6th at 9PM ET on STARZ. Who's excited?
In another new project...
With the success of her debut bestseller titled "The Love Playbook," landing the #1 spot on New York Times Best Sellers list last year, LaLa Anthony is back with another self-help book. But it’s not another book on relationships. This time, she’s dishing on how to become (and stay) successful in your professional life.
LaLa will be serving up tips on independence, money and success mixed in with a few of her own personal experiences in her brand new book titled “The Power Playbook”, which will be released May 5th.
Clearly, she knows a thing or two about finding success in the professional world. She has maneuvered through the entertainment industry going from a MTV VJ, to nabbing a few movie roles (Baggage Claim, Think Like A Man 2), to having her own reality show “LaLa’s Full Court Life”, and now she’s currently starring in the STARZ original series “Power.”
The fab mother and wife is uber excited about her venture, where she revealed the cover of her latest project with the caption, "Here it is!!!! I’m so excited that my second book THE POWER PLAYBOOK is coming out on May 5! My experiences & advice on professional success. Pre-order now! "
A few days ago, Mrs. Anthony was spotted posing it up on backstage with LL Cool J. And we believe she was on set to tape for SPIKE TV’s brand new series “Lip Sync Battle”, where LL serves as the host.
According to the network, the new series will feature celebs going head to head - lip-syncing the song of their choice - battling for the coolest bragging rights on the planet. Ha! We can possibly catch LaLa spittin' a few bars when the series premieres April 2nd on SPIKE TV. We'll be watching.
In other tv news...
The Wedding Ringer producer Will Packer has a new project coming to NBC. The network just picked up “People Are Talking”, a comedy about race and sex, written by DJ Nash (Growing Up Fisher) and produced by Will Packer Productions.
This new show comes on the heels of another new show he's producing dubbed a “dramedy” about two female LAPD homicide detectives whose lives are even messier than the crime scenes they investigate. NBC picked that one up as well.
No word on the release date of "People Are Talking" or who will be starring in it, but we’ll keep you posted. Congrats Will!
