OKEMA T. MOORE
EMMY-NOMINATED & PGA PRODUCER | RISING DIRECTOR
As an award-winning producer and member of the PGA, Okema is committed to proving that good stories come from all corners of life and deserve to be told by the most unlikely people! She has been privileged to produce across the board, including Culinary, Doc/ Doc Series, Branded, Episodic and Film.
As a Director, Okema continues to expand her eye, vision and experience. With a desire to be one of the few Black, female, multi-cam directors in episodic television, she also loves single cam and has an affinity for kid's content, animation and dramatic content that centers topics and/or characters that are left of center!
Okema T. Moore is an Emmy Nominated, PGA producer and rising director. A 2021 Directing Fellow for Minorities In Film’s inaugural branded lab, she has directed and produced content for the likes of Lifetime, Netflix, Nickelodeon, DreamWorks, FOX, and Disney/Marvel. 2021 also marked Okema’s first Showrunner title, as she showran and directed BRIC TV’s first late-night variety talk show, Hella Late! with Hollie Harper. This banner year also included directing a beautiful short film in Atl, Six Sixteen Richmond, presently in post-production, and being director and EP for a new sketch series releasing later this fall, Inner Actions.
Prior to being a for-hire director, Okema began to stretch her directing muscle with her own indie work and a series of award-winning short plays off-off Broadway in NY. Since then, she’s built a successful career producing TV shows such as Kenya Barris’, Klutch Academy, for BET, Beat Bobby Flay, The Kitchen and Chopped on The Food Network along with a host of other unscripted shows and documentaries/docu-series. However, her heart is now geared towards a focus in scripted television and navigating a successful career in that world.
Okema serves on the boards of both The Black TV & Film Collective and NY Women in Film & TV, and is committed to continuing to lift while she climbs to build up womxn, queer, IPOC, and Black creatives, as she simultaneously strives for a successful future as a TV director herself.
