"Power" season two averaged more than 6.8 million viewers per episode, tracking favorably to be the most highly watched-season ever for a STARZ Original series.* The "Power" second season finale set a new, STARZ series record for its episode premiere viewership performance (2.39M viewers Live+3) on Saturday, August 15 at 9PM ET/PT, besting the previous week's record-setting audience (2.29M for episode 209).**

"Power" airs in more than 175 countries/territories worldwide. Starz retains all global distribution and home entertainment rights to the series.

Jackson is represented by APA and attorneys Stephen Savva and Eric Feig.
