Pilgrim Media Group Inks Deal with 2500 Media


Lionsgate’s Pilgrim Media Group has signed an exclusive unscripted deal with Sean Perry’s recently launched production company, 2500 Media.

Under the new partnership, 2500 Media has access to the worldwide development and production staff at Pilgrim. Perry, founder and CEO of 2500 Media, is an industry veteran who previously founded Endeavor’s non-scripted department.

The agreement also includes a first-look scripted component with Lionsgate Television.

“When I looked around at ways to super-charge my new company 2500 Media and deliver high-quality production at a reasonable cost, it was clear that locking arms with Lionsgate and Pilgrim was the best and fastest way to accomplish our goals,” Perry said. “When you see what Kevin Beggs, Sandra Stern and their team have accomplished across Lionsgate Television and my good friend Craig Piligian has built with Pilgrim, it was a no brainer to dive in fully with them.”

“Sean has been a longtime supporter of Lionsgate and Pilgrim and he is a true leader in unscripted television,” said Beggs, group chairman and chief creative officer of Lionsgate Television Group. “We look forward to collaborating with the 2500 Media team to deliver a robust content slate.”

Piligian, president of Lionsgate Nonfiction Television and CEO and chair of Pilgrim, added, “After working with Sean for more than two decades, I am thrilled to extend and expand our successful relationship. His industry expertise, creative and business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit make him the perfect partner for us.”
