NATPE Spotlight: Lionsgate


Ann Curry anchors and executive produces M.D. Live, a factual series that Lionsgate is bringing to Miami that uses crowdsourcing to find solutions to various ailments.

“It is an event viewing experience that engages the audience in many ways,” says Agapy Kapouranis, president of international television and digital distribution for Lionsgate.

Also among Lionsgate’s NATPE highlights is The Rook, the company’s first premium original series for Starz. The thriller is about a woman who wakes up within a circle of dead bodies with no memory of how she got there and learns she’s an official in Britain’s secret service for people with paranormal abilities.

Inspired by Laura Chinn’s time growing up on Florida’s west coast, Florida Girls follows four women grappling with their stagnant lives after one member of their group leaves to pursue her dreams.

Kapouranis adds, “Lionsgate is committed to serving a broad range of digital and linear platforms around the world with premium content.”
