In Power, a wealthy businessman leads a double life as a high-stakes drug dealer. He loves the power his businesses bring him, but he also loves his family and wants to protect them. He wants out of the drug business, but we all know that getting out is never easy. James St. Patrick is a drug dealer who has a dream of giving up his life of crime and running a legitimate business. Patrick, whose street name is Ghost, tries running a legal night club. But as every TV and movie criminal who tries to go straight finds out, leaving crime behind isn't so easy. Ghost is haunted by his associates from his criminal past, and he still has police trying to bring him down. He also has problems with his family. They include his wife Tasha and his son Tariq. And then there's the prosecutor trying to bring him to justice (among other things), his former partner in crime Tommy, and his rival Kanan. The series debuted in 2014 to mixed reviews. But it became one of the highest rated shows on the Starz cable network. The original series ended in 2020. It was followed a spin off, Power Book II: Ghost, which follows the criminal exploits of Ghost's son Tariq. Another spin off, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, is expected to begin in 2021.
