“Power” creator Courtney A. Kemp has inked a multi-year overall deal with streaming platform Netflix — leaving Lionsgate behind.

According to Variety, Kemp will develop new projects through her production company End of Episode. Her projects will focus on creating stories about and from women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ voices.

“I am incredibly excited to join the Netflix family, and to continue to develop the kind of entertainment that End of Episode is known for — diverse, multilingual, watercooler, social-media fueled series that pack a serious punch,” Kemp said in a statement.

“I am looking forward to working with Bela and her team, who really appreciate the voice and perspective that we bring to the table.” Kemp will remain an executive producer within the “Power” universe, alongside Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Mark Canton.

Deadline writes that the four-year deal is reportedly worth a “high eight-figure.”

“Power” has already rolled out several show spinoffs — “Power Book II: Ghost,” “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” “Power Book IV: Force,” and “Power Book V: Influence.”

“Courtney is the real deal — a creative force and world-builder who makes great shows. I really admire her clarity of vision and voice, and she has a great sense for what audiences want,” Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s head of global TV, said in a statement. “Courtney has accomplished something really rare and extraordinary in television and we are thrilled to welcome her to Netflix.” The partnership enables Kemp’s End of Episode to expand its global footprint while focusing on putting the spotlight on stories from women, BIPOC and LGBTQ creators.
