50 Cent is expanding his TV resume by launching a live comedy and music show.

The US rapper already stars in and executive produces crime drama Power, which is entering its third season, and previously announced plans to feature in comedy series My Friend 50.

Now the 40-year-old reveals he is developing a new entertainment show, too.

"I have... a program that I'm working on right now with (US network) A&E, 50 Cent Presents," he tells People.com.

"I hate to call it a variety show because it's different than the things that people have seen in the past, but it's a weekly program that has live sketch comedy and live music. It's a lot."

The rapper did not expand on his plans for 50 Cent Presents, but he later added a post to Instagram.
