Power follows James "Ghost" St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), owner of popular New York City nightclub, Truth. While struggling to make something legitimate from his businesses, Ghost is also a major player in one of the city's biggest illegal drug networks. Struggling to balance both lives while holding together his marriage with Tasha (Naturi Naughton), Ghost realizes that the only way for him to take back control of his life is to leave his criminal enterprise behind. But there are those who have too much invested in Ghost to see him walk away from it all…and others that will do anything to deprive Ghost of any semblance of a "happily ever after." So before he can say goodbye to the past, Ghost is going to need to take power one more time…

Power was created by Courtney A. Kemp, who also serves as the series' showrunner and executive producer. Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and Gary Lennon also serve as executive producers.
