MIPCOM Spotlight: Lionsgate


Lionsgate is shining a spotlight on a trio of STARZ dramas: Heels, Hightown and BMF.

Heels stars Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig as siblings and pro-wrestling rivals who are trying to follow their late father’s legacy.

The second season of the crime series Hightown will continue its story about drug addiction on Cape Cod, centering on a woman pursuing her goal of becoming a cop while trying to bring down a drug dealer responsible for her best friend’s death.

BMF is inspired by the true story of the Flenory brothers and the crime family they created in the U.S. in the 1980s. “All three series are amazingly written with incredible performances that will captivate audiences everywhere,” says Agapy Kapouranis, president of international television and digital distribution.

“Our distribution team is laser-focused on bringing great and compelling premium content to all markets across the globe this year and beyond,” adds Kapouranis.
