Kemp signed an overall deal with Lionsgate less than four months ago and is already moving forward with the new series, which will be featured on HBO, Deadline reports.
Dirty Thirty will be a one-hour drama loosely based on real-life rogue police officers who worked at NYPD’s 30th Precinct in the 1990s. The series is described as “a story of a cop family and ends as the story of a crime wave infecting the highest levels of municipal government, corrupting the justice system and defining a city.”
“Power prequel TGE (The Golden Era ) you already know what time I’m on,” the executive producer wrote. “South Side ( Big Owen) #lecheminduroi The return of young Kanan STARZ.”
