She just happens to be the creator and showrunner of the best show on premium cable @power_starz It's authentic because she is....the fact that I hear the dudes on the corner in harlem having serious discussions about her show while walking by, to friends that have worked in the most prestigious places of our land and abroad discuss how good and authentic the show simply proves it. And when I say that MY friends are the most dynamic, brilliant, creative, and caring people of this generation and really do make shit happen, everyone looks at me sideways.... (it's also why entertaining folk is difficult for me) then let a Lil time pass, and certain nods from certain folks, then everyone jumps on.... @courtneyakemp simply is, was, and has always been the shit.... just nice to see other folk paying it! This is great, but just light weight for what you have for the world! ❤️❤️❤️ #facts #STARZpower #blackgirlmagic #dynamicperson #love #light #friends ❤️❤️#Repost @therock
She had me at - I want to write a movie script that shows a raw, human side of you the world has never seen.
A pleasure to sit for hours with the creator of POWER and prolific writer, @courtneyakemp.
I was impressed at the deep dived research she did on my life and career before our meeting. She writes brilliantly flawed, edgy, exposed, vulnerable, intense characters and she had a take on my life in ways no writer ever has.
A fascinating POV from this woman, on what makes me the man I am today.
This is the first step of many and projects like this take time. Great initial meeting and can't wait to dig in with her.
Rage.. Rage against the dying of the light. #JohnsonKemp
