Beverly Hills, Calif. - July 26, 2019 - Today at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Summer 2019 Press Tour, Carmi Zlotnik, President of Programming for Starz, a Lionsgate company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), along with "Power" executive producers Courtney A.

Blige (Mudbound, "The Umbrella Academy") is joining the cast of the first "Power" sequel, "Power Book II: Ghost."

"We have alluded previously to various spin-offs, prequels and other expansions of the 'Power' Universe," Kemp and Jackson said during the network's "Power" panel. "Today we are pleased to announce that we are in pre-production on the first of what we know will be a collection of series inspired by the dynamic world of 'Power.' 'Power Book II: Ghost' will continue the journey of some of 'Power's' most controversial characters. Joining the cast of the new series and the 'Power' family, please welcome world-renowned recording artist and Oscar nominee Mary J. Blige."

STARZ will also air "Power Confidential," the exclusive companion piece to the ultimate season of STARZ #1 hit series "Power." The after-show will air immediately following the premiere of each new episode of "Power." "Power Confidential" will highlight the most memorable and jaw-dropping moments from that week's episode, provide exclusive behind-the-scenes insights and give viewers a taste of what's to come. The cast and creators of "Power" will be joined by celebrity fans and surprise guests.
