OKEMA T. MOORE
EMMY-NOMINATED & PGA PRODUCER | RISING DIRECTOR
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.
