Courtney A. Kemp is an Emmy nominated and highly regarded creator, showrunner, and producer in the television industry. Kemp is the mind behind Starz’ critically acclaimed gritty New York drama, “Power." Under Kemp’s fearless leadership as series creator and showrunner, Power has consistently over-performed in viewership and continues to elevate itself above its competition in an oversaturated television landscape. During its 6-season stint on air, it averaged a weekly audience of around 8 million, when considering multiplatform and delayed viewing, making it the second-most-watched series on premium cable only after HBO’s “Game Of Thrones.” At the 2020 Forbes Power Women’s summit, Kemp talked about her process and the importance of creating universal stories with a diverse cast of characters.
