50 Cent Files Trademark Applications Related to TV Show

Curtis J. Jackson III, aka 50 Cent, filed two federal trademark applications on January 26th for the name of his 2003 rap album - GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN
These applications, however, are not related to music.  Instead, the artist filed one application in Class 41 for "Entertainment services in the nature of continuing program series, featuring live action, comedy and drama provided through cable television, broadcast television, internet, video-on-demand, and through other forms of transmission media; providing online information in the field of entertainment concerning television programs."

50 Cent filed another application for GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN covering various clothing items [ed. - merchandise related to the show?].

Both applications were filed on an intent to use basis, suggesting that 50 Cent is not using these marks in conjunction with the listed goods and services yet, but has a bona fide intention to do so in the near future.

Are these applications related to a new 50 Cent TV show called GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN? We may find out soon.
