Courtney A. Kemp, the creator, show-runner and executive producer of the hit STARZ original series “Power” has inked an exclusive multi-year overall deal with Starz and Lionsgate. The deal will allow her to develop and produce new projects for Starz and other content through her End of Episode production company. She will also continue her current role as show runner and executive producer on “Power.”
Kemp shard in a statement, “This new deal presents a wonderful opportunity to extend my creative efforts on ‘Power’ while developing new shows for Lionsgate. I am grateful to Jon [Feltheimer], Kevin and Chris for this warm welcome to the Lionsgate family, and I’m looking forward to a continued relationship with Chris, Carmi and the entire team at Starz.”
Kemp garnered her big break by becoming a staff writer for the then-Fox hit series The Bernie Mac Show. She then began writing for other television shows such as Eli Stone, Justice and Beauty and the Beast (a 2012 remake of the 1987 series of the same name) before eventually becoming increasingly known for her writing of episodes for the CBS political drama series The Good Wife.
