Power creator and showrunner Courtney Kemp Agboh has inked an overall deal with premium cable network Starz. Under the multi-year deal, Agboh will continue to serve as showrunner/executive producer on Power and develop new projects for the network.
“Courtney is a highly regarded showrunner whose creative vision brings viewers into the two worlds of ‘Power.’ We are extremely pleased to continue our relationship with Courtney in the coming years,” said Carmi Zlotnik, Managing Director of Starz.
This overall deal comes less than 24 hours after Starz picked up Power, which stars Omari Hardwick and 50 Cent, for a 10 episode third season, which is set to air in 2016. That renewal had been considered a no-brainer after the second season premiere smashed prior ratings records and made Power Starz’s highest ever rated original series.
Agboh, repped by CAA and Felker, Toczek, Suddleson, Abramson, began her career in the magazine world before moving to Hollywood. On the TV side she has worked on such series as The Bernie Mac Show, Eli Stone and most notably The Good Wife, for which she earned an Emmy nomination.
