A&E is also excited to work with the industry mogul, seeing him as a “perfect partner” for the network. “Leaning into A&E’s legacy in showcasing the arts, we’re setting out to redefine the traditional variety show,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming at A&E Network. “50 Cent is the perfect partner to refresh this classic format. He is a true taste-maker across industries and we are excited to see his impressive showcase of talent.”
