But Jackson, 44, has never had a shortage of ambition. He used his rap-star clout to help bring “Power” to fruition as a co-star and as exec producer alongside creator and showrunner Courtney Kemp. Now, as “Power” winds through its sixth and final season, which bowed Aug. 25, Jackson is busy expanding his horizons as a producer for Starz and other outlets, notably ABC, where he is behind the midseason drama “For Life.”
Jackson added directing to his résumé after helming his first episode of “Power,” the pivotal third installment — called “Forget About Dre” — of the 10-episode season. He also signed a mammoth multi-series production deal with Starz last year.
