MIPCOM Spotlight: Lionsgate


Suburgatory’s Jane Levy stars in the Lionsgate MIPCOM highlight Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, a drama about a computer coder who starts to hear the innermost thoughts of those around her through songs following an unusual event.

The anthology series Manhunt: Lone Wolf chronicles the search for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bomber, Eric Rudolph, who’s played by Jack Huston. Also set in Atlanta, Georgia, Ambitions is a multigenerational family saga from Will Packer (Girls Trip, Straight Outta Compton).

“It’s important to align ourselves with great content creators and understand that every buyer has different needs,” says Agapy Kapouranis, president of international television and digital distribution at Lionsgate. “Our goal is to meet and exceed those needs with quality content that connects and resonates with audiences.”

Kapouranis adds, “Our lineup showcases our ability to collaborate with exceptional storytellers and leverage our producing partnerships to bring premium content to the market.”
