NATPE Spotlight: Lionsgate


On the Lionsgate slate at NATPE, the second season of the anthology drama series Manhunt: Deadly Games chronicles one of the largest manhunts on U.S. soil: the search for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph, played by Jack Huston.

Also on the slate is Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. “It’s a very moving and fun, high-concept drama that uses music in an innovative and purposeful way,” says Agapy Kapouranis, president of international television and digital distribution at Lionsgate. “It’s already creating a lot of buzz in the U.S., and we believe it has the potential to reach viewers around the world.”

The BBC One comedy series The Goes Wrong Show, meanwhile, is a television adaptation of the award-winning West End production The Play That Goes Wrong.

“Our goal is to continue to deliver stories with global appeal that meet the needs of our buyers and will resonate with their audiences,” says Kapouranis.
