NATPE Budapest Spotlight: Lionsgate Entertainment


Part of ABC’s fall lineup, Ten Days in the Valley is one of the lead offerings from Lionsgate Entertainment for NATPE Budapest.

Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer) stars in this “tense and dynamic thriller series, which will have international audiences gripped from the very start,” says Peter Iacono, the company’s president of international television and digital distribution. “This is certainly going to be a drama to watch.”

From Viaplay and Lionsgate, Swedish Dicks is a comedy about a pair of private investigators.

Meanwhile, Dirty Dancing has been given a modern adaptation in a new three-hour TV event. “Dirty Dancing has been a hit for 30 years, and our aim has been to build upon the original and introduce the story to a whole new audience around the world as well as appeal to those who know and love the theatrical movie so well,” says Iacono.

He adds, “Lionsgate is known for making platform-defining programming that stands out in the marketplace.”
