In the spring of 2020, Kemp said farewell to popular Starz series “Power,” which followed a ruthless drug dealer (Omari Hardwick) trying to go straight, after six seasons⁠— or did she? Her first series as a creator and showrunner, “Power” is set to live again through not one but four spinoff series she will helm again for Starz: “Power Book II: Ghost,” “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” “Power Book IV: Force” and “Power Book V: Influence,” all featuring protagonist Rashad Tate. A onetime journalist — including pieces for GQ and Mademoiselle — with a masters in English literature from Columbia, she got her big break in 2004 as a staff writer on “The Bernie Mac Show” and then served as a writer-producer on “My Own Worst Enemy,” “Happy Endings,” “The Good Wife,” “Hawaii Five-0” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
