TV streaming service Crackle has picked up a new cop drama executive produced by rapper/actor Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, the company said Wednesday.

"The Oath" will explore "a different kind of subculture -- gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend," Crackle, a Sony-owned company, said in a media release. The 10-episode, hourlong show was created and written by former Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Joe Halpin ("Hawaii Five-O," "Ice," "The Lottery").

Crackle will also develop an hourlong original called "RPM" with 50 Cent and his production company, G-Unit Film & Television. "A high-octane drama set in the working class streets of Boston's most corrupt neighborhoods, 'RPM' follows a used-car salesman who starts moonlighting as a getaway driver for a Boston crime syndicate after financial ruin threatens his family," Crackle said.

Crackle didn't respond to a request for comment.
