According to Deadline, Kemp’s 3-year overall deal with STARZ’s parent company will see the “Power” franchise expanded into several spin-offs, and the EMMY nominated producer will also develop other projects that’ll span multiple platforms.
The site reports:
Deemed as “one-of-a-kind” agreement by Lionsgate itself, the development and production deal launches Kemp and her End of Episode shingle to expand the Power franchise with potential spinoffs among a number of commitments by Starz. Additionally, the compact encompasses other projects for Lionsgate to take to market for Kemp on a multitude of platforms. While officially no one’s offering specific terms for the deal, it is over a three-year period of time, I hear, with a very solid investment from Lionsgate.

“Courtney is a one of a kind talent and we couldn’t be more excited about this unique and exclusive deal,” asserts Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs. “She’s an exceptional producer, incredible showrunner and artist, and we’re proud that she chose Lionsgate as her creative incubator. We look forward to the bold, original and provocative content she will offer our programming slates.”
Kemp’s new deal also sees ex-Lionsgate head of worldwide scripted television chief Chris Selak joining her End of Episode shingle as company President.
“I’m incredibly proud of the success we’ve had with Power and I’m excited about expanding our banner and diversifying the types of stories we’re telling,” Kemp said. “Chris brings with her a depth of experience that will elevate End of Episode to a new level and I’m looking forward to exploring new ways of writing about my obsession: the intersections of violence, power, sex and romance.”
