Power producer and writer Courtney Kemp offers up another series where the bad guys look cool.
HBO has put into development a new drama series from Power creator Courtney A. Kemp about a group of dirty cops in New York City.
Accurately titled Dirty Thirty, the present-day series is inspired by the true story of a gang of cops working out of Harlem’s infamous 30th Precinct in the 1990s. According to HBO, the series stages a police family and ends as the story of a crime wave hitting the highest levels of municipal government, corrupting the justice system and ultimately, the city.
Kemp is slated to serve as writer, executive producer, and showrunner on the project.
The hour-long drama will be a joint production between HBO and Lionsgate, the studio which produces Power and where Kemp is under a multi-year deal.
